#5291 closed enhancement (fixed)

Dashicons support for WordPress 3.8

Reported by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby Owned by: johnjamesjacoby's profile johnjamesjacoby
Milestone: 1.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Administration Keywords: has-patch


Let's use the Buddicons supplied by Ben for top level menus and the components settings page.

Haven't figured out a way to make it backwards compatible without having separate stylesheets and making a decision in PHP, which seems like more trouble than it's worth for icons IMO.

Using the technique suggested here by nacin (targeting the old versions rather than new ones), 5291.02.patch provides a CSS-only method of backward compatibility.

I also took the liberty to fix the Components icons for Firefox. It turns out that, because FF doesn't support background-position-x and background-position-y, they have never worked properly! I'm pretty shocked this has never been reported. Anyway, simple fix.

This is looking good and I don't see a problem including it in 1.9, but I would like to have another set of eyes on it (especially if you can check on a 3.7 *and* a 3.8 rig).
