Category Icons

Category Icons Plugin allows you to add custom icons to classifieds categories created on your site. The Plugin will help you better highlight categories, visually present them and allow users to instantly spot the right category just by quickly glancing at the icon. The Category Icons Plugin is designed to streamline user navigation across multiple categories and make the browsing experience more convenient.

Hot it works

When a user wishes to browse through available categories on your site, he will see an appropriate icon next to every category. The Plugin will especially come in handy for classifieds sites with multiple categories and subcategories. Instead of browsing multiple categories and subcategories the user may now locate the right icon, for instance a camera icon for camcorders and accessories or a jacket icon for clothes, click it and navigate to the right category.

Back End

Once installed, you’ll need to proceed to the "Basic Settings", open the "Category Icons" tab to set width and height of icons in pixels, position of icons in relation to category links in the front end, and make sure you need cropping. The Plugin offers four positions for icons: left, top, right and bottom. After configuring the Plugin you may go to "Categories" to set icons for categories and subcategories. You may add an icon when adding a new category or when editing an existing one. All you have to do is to simply browse for an icon and upload it to the category.
