FA WP Admin Menu Icons

Descriere

View on GitHub for better documentation

FA WP Admin Menu Icons allows you to use Font Awesome icons for WordPress custom post types and custom menu pages by passing the Font Awesome class string, just like using Font Awesome on the front end

Here’s an example:

register_post_type( 'custom_post_type', [
    //...
    'menu_icon' => 'fas fa-thumbs-up',
    //...
] );

Usage

`register_post_type()`

To use a Font Awesome icon for your custom post type with register_post_type(), use a Font Awesome class string for the $args['menu_icon] parameter:

register_post_type( 'custom_post_type', [
    //...
    'menu_icon' => 'fa-solid fa-thumbs-up',
    //...
] );

`add_menu_page()`

To use a Font Awesome icon for your custom menu page with add_menu_page(), use a Font Awesome class string for the $icon_url parameter:

add_menu_page(
    page_title: 'Custom Menu Page',
    menu_title: 'Custom Menu Page',
    capability: 'manage_options',
    menu_slug: 'custom_menu_page',
    icon_url: 'fa-solid fa-thumbs-up',
);

Custom Post Type UI plugin

To use a Font Awesome icon with the Custom Post Type UI plugin, use a Font Awesome class string for the Menu Icon field when adding or editing a Post Type

Caveats

FA WP Admin Menu Icons only supports Font Awesome’s free icons

I needed a horse menu icon. My custom one looked terrible. This was perfect. Installed and working in 2 minutes, so easy!

I don't know what the reviewer below is crying about in terms of a ReadMe, the description lists all you need to know. I had my font awesome menu icon displaying in seconds thanks to this. Appreciate the author's time to create and distribute! 🙂

Did exactly what I needed, to be able to use Font Awesome together with the Custom Post Type UI plugin. You just add the Font Awesome class as the Menu Icon. Thanks a lot!

Clearly, it isn't "plug" and play. After install, I couldn't figure out what it changed, where to change stuff at (icons to the menu). No documentation on how to use after install.

Very easy to put in fontawesome icons, so I don't just have to choose from the boring old dashicons.
