What is the best way to override a plugin functionality?
Take for example.
I modified the Facebook and Twitter plugins just a little bit. I actually change the social sign buttons to something that is a bit more good looking.
I just updated to 2.1.12 and that modification is gone.
So is there a way I can override the functionality of a plugin, in this case just the underlying html of the social sign in buttons, without actually modifying the plugin.
Now I know I can just duplicate the plugin, rename it, and do whatever modification I want in the renamed version. But what happens when the plugin is updated and maybe a feature is added?
