It works with more themes than before, example : Prototype or Canvas.

It has an incredibly simple panel settings :

Brand new plugin : Category Icons Lite

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(); ?>

Or :

<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

codaSlider error

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) :

wp_enqueue_script('caticons-links-panel', '/wp-content/plugins/category-icons/js/category_icons-links-panels.js');

Category Icons patch for WordPress 2.8

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) :

  1. deactivate the plugin,
  2. log out of the admin control panel,
  3. replace the old category_icons-panel.js in the js folder by this one,
  4. clear your browser cache,
  5. close all open browser windows,
  6. open a browser, log in and reactivate the plugin.

Please leave me a comment if it’s not working.

So I’m searching for a volunteer who would create icons for my categories :
