How to add Icons to my page or category section at sidebar?

Icons automatically appears at the sidebar, after assigning them to the pages or categories at icons admin menu.
You do not need to insert some special code for inserting icons.
Icons automatic inserting also during using these functions: wp_list_pages, wp_list_categories.

If I am using functions wp_list_pages, wp_list_categories and do not using sidebar, are icons available ?



Excellent Plugin

Please update.. I can’t find any other plugins with the features of this plugin. Now I’m using this plugin to display the pages in the widget area, with beautiful icon representation.

See my site for the plugin action.
