Description (last modified by johnjamesjacoby)

Our icons are fun, but arguably do not give off a very accurate description of what exactly each component does.

Currently:

  • Piñata - Activity
  • Balloons - Groups
  • Candles - Friends
  • Envelope - Messages
  • Hat - Members?
  • Cake - Blogs?

I'd like to recommend we once again commission @empireoflight to dream up new, more useful icons for our components, either to be included in Dashicons for general use as part of #WP30902, or as SVG's in BuddyPress should they not be deemed appropriate for WordPress core.

Recent Dashicons meetings appear to be leaning towards converting only WordPress core Dashicons into SVG's, meaning it's likely BuddyPress will need to include its own icons for future updates.

Helen: Replying to netweb:

In bbpress-dashicons.css.patch: Added bbPress CSS classes


We had originally left them out to "protect" them. Does this make bbPress's life easier with registering menu pages, though?

Basically the bb's icons were hidden to "protect" them, aka, hinder other plugins from reusing them "easily".

I think there's a handful of other WP Core "protected" icons not related to the bb's in that font without CSS classes from memory...

Closing most tickets related to BP-Default and BP-Legacy, since the upcoming BP-Nouveau template pack (planned for 3.0) will make these redundant.
