Enables easy use of the Genericons and Social Logo icon sets from within WordPress. Icons can be inserted using either HTML or a shortcode.

Genericon'd includes three icon sets:

  • Genericons Neue - Generic looking icons, suitable for a blog or simple website.
  • Social Logos - A repository of all the social logos used on WordPress.com
  • Genericons - Generic looking icons as a Font, suitable for a blog or simple website.

By default, Genericons Neue and Social Logos are both active and use SVG sprites, not fonts. If you want to go back to displaying the icons as a font, you can do so via settings.

To use any of the Genericons icons on your WordPress site you can use basic HTML (for inserting in themes and functions) or shortcodes (for use in posts or widgets). You can adjust the size of the icons via css or, when using the shortcode, the size attribute. Default size is 16px for Genericons and 24 for Social Logos.

To display the Twitter icon: [genericon icon=twitter]
