    I tend to keep my menus looking pretty simple but if I decide to add icons this looks like the perfect plugin.

    As you say Jeff “Simple Yet Effective”

    I’ve been using Menu Social Icons which works well. It’s only FontAwesome. I might give this a try on a staging site to see how it goes.

    Cool! Thanks for sharing, Jeff. Notice any impact on site performance?

      None at all because I think it’s using an icon from an icon font, not an actual image. I’ll ping the developer to see if he can respond.

      For the icon font sets, the only possible impact would be the additional loading of their css and font files. This is why I provided the settings meta box so you can disable the icon sets you don’t need and their associated css and font files won’t be loaded on your site.

      As for the “Image” type (the latest & most requested feature so far), well, there will be extra HTTP request for each image :)

    Thank you for introducing Menu Icons to the world Jeff! I really enjoy developing it and am hoping people would enjoy using it too!

    That’s a great plugin Jeff, I already knew it, and it is in my favorites


  6. Dev

    This is a great plugin, Jeff :). Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, pretty slick plugin!! Nice addition to my WPcore collection. Thanks so much!! :)

    Nice plugin. I’m going to give it a try on a new site I’m building. Thanks.

    This is very cool, something that makes a lot of sense for theme authors to support. I wonder how hard it would be to auto-sprite the image icons (1 http request for tiny a image is kind of expensive) and also manage dpi-dependent sizes.

    Thanks for this review about Menu Icons Jeff. However, while it works for some themes, I observed a glitch with it when activated on Divi Elegantthemes. I noticed that the native WP post/page area was disrupted (not loading stylesheet) when the plugin is activated. Aside this, the plugin works well but I need to deactivate it whenever I need to work with WordPress post/page area!


    • Dzikri Aziz

      That’s weird. I’m happy to debug this issue, but since the theme is not freely available, I’m afraid there’s nothing much I can do.

    This is a really nice plugin. I remember once trying to add icons to the menu and it didn’t goo too well. This is super easy and looks great. One question though, what’s the best icon to use for “About Me”?


  12. Kenjie S. Suarez

    It looks great on my theme. Awesome plugin!

    mine only seems to show up when i am logged in as admin. is there a way to let everyone who visits my site see these icons? i have it all set up, im just not sure how to modify the visibility. :(

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. (Great Plugin :) )
