Bootstrap Glyphicons in Visual Editor


Adds the Glyphicons included with Twitter Bootstrap 3 to the WordPress visual editor. All credit goes to those 2 places for their awesome work! I just loved the Glyphicons with Bootstrap so much and wanted a way to insert them into posts if I felt like it. I figured others might want the same functionaily.

Instructions for use:

Method A (Visual Editor – Preferred):

  1. Edit/Add any Page or Post

  2. In the visual editor you will see a new bright red “G” button. Click the button

  3. You will now be presented with a selection menu.

  4. Simply select any icon and the shortcode will be placed into your post/page!

Method B (Manual Shortcode):
Insert shortcode into your post.
[glyphicons icon=”iconname”]

Method C (Manual into Theme):
Since this loads the necessary fonts and css for the Glyphicons you may put them anywhere using the standardized code:


  • New Visual Editor Button
  • Glyphicons Selection Screen


  1. Upload contents of to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to the visual editor for any page or post and use the new bright red button.
