I am working on a site and it is possible that the site will have a number of pages which feature links to the client's social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn...).
Now I know that the URLs to their profile shouldn't change too often, but they would like the option to update the URLs if they ever needed to.
My question is what the best method would be to allow my client to simply visit one page in the Admin area where they can copy and paste the new URLs into the fields for each social media site?
I thought about using Custom fields, but I guess there must be a way I can create a small widget that just allows me to echo whatever has been placed in the fields for each social media site. That way I can just echo that particular widget in the 'href' of the social media button and I can use it anywhere I want in my theme files.
Problem is, I don't delve much into custom widgets yet and I am not sure whether 1) it's the best way to achieve this and 2) Whether you can create a widget that simply allows you to echo whatever has been place in that field (almost just like a custom field).
Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
