[Resolved] web icons

    I just installed wordpress for the first time and I want my blog to include web icons..such as a little clock beside the time and things like that. Is there a plugin for this? I’ve already downloaded the web icons that I want to use…the problem is, I don’t know how to use them. Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • Just set them up in the CSS as backrounds to the various dohickeys.

    Use something like .meta h4 {background: #fff url(icons/icon.gif’) left repeat-no}

    I couldnt get it to work, thanks for replying though.

    you can just put the HTML, in the right spot in the right template of your theme.

    the code would be like,
    <img src="http://yoursite.com/your-little-clock.gif" alt="Icon of a clock">

    you might find the code that shows the Time in your sidebar.php or index.php or category.php and that is where you would try inserting the HTML above

    always make a backup of your theme before editing the templates within

    Thank u very much, I understand now.

    I wouldn’t follw dgold. Presentational markup is best avoided. Style in the CSS. It might not be easy first time out but that is no reason to go off at a tangent.
