Support » Plugin: Menu Icons by ThemeIsle » Well designed and thought out

  • jqz


    Very near perfect. (Though I’ve only so far used the Dashicons and FontAwesome options.) I assume the reason for having the various font/icon options behind checkboxes to enable them is to avoid including unnecessary CSS and fonts if they are not actually used.

    I’m pleased to see that style attributes are not written out if they are the default values (thus making overriding with CSS easier without having to use the dreaded !important).

    Having default settings for each menu is a very useful feature (note that changes only apply to newly added menu items, which is what you’d expect).

    In my case, I want a larger default icon size for a specific menu location, and can easily achieve this using the menu_icons_menu_settings filter:

      function($menuSettings, $menuId) {
        $menuLocations = \array_flip(\get_nav_menu_locations());
        if (($menuLocations[$menuId] ?? null) === 'mobile_menu') {
          $menuSettings = \is_array($menuSettings) ? $menuSettings : [];
          $menuSettings += ['font_size' => '1.4'];
        return $menuSettings;
      10, 2

    However, it would be nice if there was a filter invoked from Menu_Icons_Front_End::get_icon_style() so I could also easily override the defaults used for comparison when generating the front end markup for a specific menu ID. (The menu_icons_default_style filter applies to all menus.)

    (Also, I think you can use the nav_menu_item_title filter instead of the_title to more precisely target the menu item ‘title’.)
