Category Icons
Not Working? (12 posts)

    Can't seem to figure this one out. I've added the template tags and it's still not showing up. The screen where it was suggesting where to add it is empty as well.
    I deleted if (defined('OT_LIBRARY') AND OT_LIBRARY) { and the } that was suggested in another thread. Still nothing.

    Am I missing something?

    Could you give me more details about what you want to do, please ? Do you have an issue with Rob Marsh's plugin ?

    Thanks for the quick reply. I don't use any of Rob Marsh's plugins.
    What do you need from me that could help resolve this?
    Here's the URL to the site: http://i.cx/95z7

    Sorry, the URL is not working. But if you just want to display category icons in your post, I suggest you to try the Category Icons Lite : it does the job all by itself.
    Or, if you really want to use Category Icons (not the Lite), you need to read some how to :

    You have a list of all the how to here.

    Sorry about that. Try breathedreamgo dot com

    I've inserted <?php if (function_exists('get_cat_icon')) get_cat_icon(); ?> into many hooks and still get nothing. Icons are assigned and displaying in the options panel.

    Thanks for the help.

    One the icons are assigned, you need to paste the code :
    <?php if (function_exists('get_cat_icon')) get_cat_icon(); ?>
    at the right place in your template files. Did you use "Template Tags" panel as explained here ? It shows you where to paste the call to get_cat_icons().

    Yeap, the template tags screen is empty because I pasted all the suggested places.

    I think that's because your theme does not use the "usual" way to display post titles (but I'm sure the widget's working, though). The Template Tags Panel is not able to detect the location for all the themes. I'm sorry I can't help you, because I don't have the canvas theme : it's not free...

    I'm working on Category Icons Lite, and maybe it'll do the job itself, without the need of the template tags. "Stay tuned".

    I've released the Category Icons Lite v1.1.4. Not available from WordPress UI yet, but it will be soon. You can try it, if you want.

    I've tried the Lite version but where's the option to upload the icons?

    Thanks again for all the help.
