Why Should I Use Icons?

Icons are useful to organize the terms thematically and to improve their presentation. Currently, WordPress' built-in dashicons are supported.

The icon will show up to the left of the term title. 

Example

Assigning Icon to One Term

To assign an icon, simply head to the CM Tooltip - Term Properties panel when editing a term. 

The last field should contain:

  • A textbox with the Choose icon button. Click it to select the icon and to see the preview.
  • Color picker
  • Position dropdown (left or right)

By default the color is black and position is set to left.
