WordPress Plugin Review: The Social Contact Display

Have you ever wanted to use a WordPress Plugin that shows all of your social media accounts your WordPress site is connected to?

Social Contact Display WordPress Plugin provides a simple display for your social media that contributes to your WordPress site. For example, if you have Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest accounts which all contribute content in addition to your WordPress site, the Social Contact Display will display the links to those social media accounts with buttons, icons, or any other display setting the user chooses.

  4. Locate the WordPress Social Contact Display widget and drag to your desired location
  5. Fill in the options and select Save

It is a good idea to keep as much personal information private as you can. There are two options I am going to talk about in this article for encrypting or disguising your email address on your WordPress blog.

Contact Forms

The first option for hiding your email address is to set up a Contact Page with a contact form.

The Contact Form allows you to set various options such as the topics they are contacting you about, and even to direct content specific issues to different email addresses if you have more than one contributor or site manager. The email address is not public, and it makes it easy for the user to contact you.

A site can have multiple contact forms for a variety of purposes, from strictly contacting the site owner or author to registration for an event, all protecting your email and allowing easy access for the visitor. Continue reading Don’t Be Hacked: Protect Your Email Address
