Create and import a custom icon set

You can use the IcoMoon App or Fontello to create and download a custom icon set as a web font, then upload it so Woo360 can use it. Here are the instructions for each task.

Tip: If you use icons from different icon sets on the same page, creating a custom icon set with just those icons is a great way to reduce page load time. That way Woo360 only loads one icon set.

Create a custom icon set

You can use either the IcoMoon app or Fontello to create a custom icon set, either from sets they provide or from icons that you upload. Here are instructions for both.

To create a custom icon set with the IcoMoon App:

  1. Open the IcoMoon App.
  2. Select the icons you want in your set by clicking on them.
    You can select icons from paid or free libraries by clicking the Icon Library button in the top toolbar.
    If you have your own icons, you can upload them by clicking Import icons in the top toolbar.
  3. Once you have your set selected, click Generate font in the lower right corner, verify your font set, then click Preferences in the toolbar.
  4. Change Font name to something that will help you remember the set in Woo360.
    Tip: This step is optional, but the default font name is icomoon, so if you import more than one IcoMoon icon set, Woo360 will display the same icomoon label for both.
  5. Rename the Class prefix from icon- to anything else.
    Important: Be sure to provide a custom class prefix. If left unchanged, multiple icon fonts using IcoMoon's default icon- prefix may conflict, causing some to display incorrectly or not display within Woo360‚Äôs icon selector.  
  6. Open the CSS Selector section and choose either Use attribute selectors or Use a class.
    Don't choose to use the <i> tag, because it can override all other fonts' styling in Woo360.
  7. Click X in the upper right corner to close the Preferences window.
  8. Click Download.
    The download file is a zip file prefixed with icomoon.
  9. Follow the instructions below to import your icon set into Woo360.

To create a custom icon set with Fontello:

  1. Go to the Fontello site.
  2. Select the icons you want in your set by clicking on them or upload SVG icons by dragging them in. See the Fontello help for additional information. 
  3. Once you have your set selected, add an optional custom font name in the upper right corner. 
    Mousing over the font name field will tell you the naming constraints.
  4. Click Download webfont in the upper right corner.
    The download file is a zip file prefixed with fontello.
  5. Follow the instructions below to import your icon set into Woo360.

Import the custom icon set into Woo360

  2. When the Media Library upload window opens, select your zip file. After the icon set has uploaded, click Select file.

  • Fontello plus the date uploaded to the Media Library.
