IconPress Lite – Icon management in WordPress


IconPress is the world’s first icon management interface for WordPress, an innovative tool for managing icons straight into your dashboard, redefining the standard of icon use, as the best alternative for font icons.

It all happens through an easy interface that’s capable of inserting icons into your website’s pages, through most of all major popular page builders and native WordPress super powers.

Check out the demo walk-through (7 mins)


IconPress is the inevitable result of an improperly used technology. Fonts are not quite designed to host icons. They’re monochrome, they’re huge and most importantly they’re loaded as entire packs which really do slow your website.

IconPress is taking advantage of SVG technology, combining ONLY the icons you are using throughout your website, into a sprite. That’s really, really cool!!

Absolutely gorgeous icons, no http requests, no painfully large libraries of fonts resulting in a performance boost of your website.


IconPress plugin is hosting some of the most popular icon libraries, such as Web & Mobile Icon Bundle, Typicons, Vivid Icons, Entypo, Open Iconic, Linecons, Font Awesome, Material Icons, IcoMoon, Meteocons, Devicon

Upgrade to ICONPRESS PRO to access over 100.000 icons (and possibly much, much more) from IconFinder, straight into your WordPress dashboard or right into your page builder’s elements.


That’s right. It’s so easy to find an icon and add it. IconPress’s interface is fast (built with React) and intuitive.

Upon saving, your chosen icons will be saved into your own collection. This collection is the only part that’s loaded into the frontend. No other icons, fonts or whatever, just those icons.

Support for page builders, Gutenberg & shortcodes

IconPress currently supports all major page builders, such as WPBakery Page builder, Elementor and Beaver Builder. Others very soon!

Also, we’re part of WordPress’s future by having our very own Gutenberg block.

Unfortunately, elementor widget doesn't work anymore, and there is no reply on the support forum, would love to see a fix for this, and update the rating to 5 stars again as it is what the plugin's working version deserves. Thank you.
