How do I edit or style icons?

Like regular fonts, these icons are vectors, so they are fully scalable to any size. Consider using css to make icons the precise size you need. You can also change the icon’s color, orientation, or whatever you can think of.

.ion-checkmark {
font-size: 30px;
color: orange;

Where can I find a list of the icons available?

The icons come with a Cheet Sheet which can be accesses via the Plugins page in WordPress. It will list all the plugins, their class name, css content value, and provide an example of different sizes.

You can also visit for a searchable list of all the icons. Yay! No scrolling line by line!
