  1. Hi there. Beautiful plugin thank you.
    Would it be possible to change the label to say the name of the network, e.g. instead of saying ‘F subscribers 12345’ I want it to say ‘F facebook |12345’
    Is this possible??

    1. Also, is there a way to not display the title of the widget ‘social counter’? I tried to clear the title but it doesn’t seem to be saving the widget without a name.

  2. Hello, this is a response to the question I had in the forums.

    Original question: “Hello,

    I just downloaded the Silicon Social Counter and I love it. It looks great and works well….for the most part. I’m having one issue, however. The Twitch section does not display a number except for “0” which is incorrect. The username that I have placed in the box is correct. I’ve tried to enter both the URL and the username alone. Neither work. Any clues as to why this problem has occurred?

    Thanks!”

    You asked me to provide the following information:

    fsockopen/cURL: Your server has fsockopen and cURL enabled.
    WP Remote Get: wp_remote_get() was successful.

    Please help, thanks!

  3. Hey.
    I am using Counters, but there is a problem. Counters do not update automaticaly. If i want to update numbers, i need to go to settings and save changes (no changes needed). Every time i save it, numbers refresh and it is ok. Sorry for my bad english.

    1. Hello, counters are updating 1 time per day, if they will be updated every time user visit your site – your api keys will be banned.

  4. Hi,
    thank you for this great plugin. I like it.
    But I’ve a problem with the facebook counter – it shows 0 – and that is wrong. The User-ID is correct – the link is working.

    The other counters are correct.

    Can you help me?

  5. Hi thanks for this awesome plugin !

    I’m wondering, google + and instagram showed 0 fan counter value. I tried api keys etc and still not showing after 1 day FB and pinterest working fine

    thanks in advance

  6. Hi, It was working fine, but then a few days ago it just stopped updating counts for facebook.

    Is this cache related?

          1. You need to navigate to Silicon Counters dashboard and hit save, also make sute that all data are correct

  7. Hello, I wonder if it is possible to change the language of the words (likes, followers, and subscribers)? Grateful!

  8. Hello,
    I am using Counters, but there is a problem: Vimeo counters… Dont’t work. I’ve only 6 followers, ok, but I wont to see they.

  9. I LOVE this counter! It’s showing up in the sidebar widget with square box bullets above each platform. Any suggestions to get rid of those? I’ll go ahead and put it up with the squares so you can see. Thank you!

  10. Thank you for plugin. Youtube does not seem to be working. Count is saying zero (0) but i have a few followers.
    triple checked the user id and channel url. Also did google api and enabled youtube data.

    on the console side it is saying error 403 picking up. how to fix this?
