I wanted it to be simple to use : it does the job all by itself ! No need to search where to put the template tags.
It’ll work with a lot of themes. Just try. If you have an issue, make sure your template has the post title preceded by the permalink and its title :
<a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" ... title="<?php the_title(); ?>">
<?php the_title(); ?>
<a title="<?php the_title(); ?>" ... href="<?php the_permalink() ?>">
<?php the_title(); ?>
How to use it :
1. Upload an image as usual via the Media Menu
2. Select the category you want to assign to the image
3. Save the changes

For those having the following error :
Syntax error, unrecognized expression: [@name=’igcaticons_spacerstype’][@value=’image’]
category_icons-links-panels.js:2TypeError: Result of expression ‘jQuery(”div#slider1″).codaSlider’ [undefined] is not a function.
just comment this line (it should be line number 547) :
Update 2 : the patch is not needed anymore as there is a new version of category icons (2.1) that is compatible with WordPress 2.8+. Download it to resolve the issue.
Update 1 : here is the detailed procedure (thanks to ycs for the tip) :
- deactivate the plugin,
- log out of the admin control panel,
- replace the old category_icons-panel.js in the js folder by this one,
- clear your browser cache,
- close all open browser windows,
- open a browser, log in and reactivate the plugin.
Please leave me a comment if it’s not working.
As you can see, I’ve finally found icons for my categories… 🙂
As you can see, I don’t have icons for my categories. I’ve been searching around for icons, but unfortunatly, I couldn’t find ones corresponding to my categories.
So I’m searching for a volunteer who would create icons for my categories :
Documentation, How to, FAQ, Translations, Changelog, News, Tips & Tricks
If someone wants to help, you’re welcome !
Yes, I don’t provide any icon with the plugin, but you can always go visit this website : Famfamfam. And it’s $0.00, as always ! If you know some other icons resources, feel free to post your links here…
