Easy Font Icons

Description

Easy Font Icons lets you add a font icon to any post, page, or custom post type. It displays a custom meta box below the content editor where you choose the icon and link it to the post.
You can choose to display the icon in two ways:
– by adding a function to the loop in your theme file
– appending the icon to the h1 tag of your post…

Installation

Once the plugin is activated, you need to navigate to the options page and select which post types should be used.
Any post type type that is selected will display a custom meta box on the edit page.

If you choose the default output option, you will need to use the following code within the loop of your theme to output the icon:

<?php mm_easy_font_icons::mm_efi_custom_icon() ?>

This method will output a <span> tag containing the icon and some inline CSS styles. This first option is more for developers or people who have some experience in modifying WordPress themes.

You can also choose the “before title” option. This will append the icon before the post title within the H1 tag.

Regardless of the method you choose, the icon will be output within a span tag with three CSS classes and some inline CSS.
The classes will be:

.mm_efi_{font-identifier}
.efi_font_{font-icon-letter}
.efi_post_num_{POST ID}

These three classes will vary depending on the font style selected, the icon (letter) selected, and the ID of the post.

You can override any syles by using these classes. You may need to use ‘!important’ with your CSS style declaration to make it override the existing styles.
