My gut was right 😃. You can add extra icons without editing the plugin, by adding something similar to this to your theme’s functions.php

function wp4632_extra_site_icons( $return, $url) {
    $sites = array(
        '' => 'wordpress',
        '' => 'book',
    $parsed = parse_url( $url );
    $return = false;
    if ( false !== $parsed ) {
        $host = $parsed['host'];
        if ( array_key_exists( $host, $sites ) ) {
            $return = $sites[ $host ];
    return $return;
add_filter( 'syn_link_mapping', 'wp4632_extra_site_icons', 10, 2);

For maximum upgrade safety, I put modifications like this into a child theme.Without similar code in my theme, this post doesn’t display the (test) Mastodon syndication link… but with it the link and icon are displayed. The $sites array can be modified with any URLs you want mapped to a suitable icon in the set.Hope this helps you out!
