Simple Category Icons


Simple Category Icons (SCI) was developed because of dissatisfaction with other icon plugins for categories. SCI provides a way to put icons next to your taxonomies like categories, tags and custom taxonomies in a easy and friendly way. Besides being simple SCI offers you full control over the output.


  • Three customizable sizes for your icons ( small, medium, large )
  • Integrates in taxonomies admin interface
  • Simple theme template call
  • Stores your icons in the media library
  • You can use any taxonomy to put icons at.
  • Use filters and arguments to customize output

See the instructions under ‘installation’ to get most out of SCI.

More features will be added after popular demand
