The Beginner's Guide to Icon Fonts in WordPress

I have literally dozens of social icon sets I've collected over the last few years, and have even created a few sets of my own to try to achieve that perfect fit for a particular project. But lately, I've discovered icon fonts, and I haven't been using those old image icons in a while. Imagine dingbats of every kind and style – social icons, website icons, anything you can think of – only they're not images: they're actually fonts. That's a big deal because with image icons, you get, well, static images. You might get a few different sizes of the same image, but you really can't do anything with them other than use them as-is.

The hosts file contains lines of text consisting of an IP address in the first text field followed by one or more host names.

Google is a fully automated search engine that uses software known as "spiders" to crawl the web on a regular basis and find sites to add to our index. In fact, the vast majority of sites listed in our results aren't manually submitted for inclusion, but found and added automatically when our spiders crawl the web. If you've just added a URL to your site, or a page has significantly changed since the last time it was crawled, you can ask Google to crawl it. If your site offers specialized products, content, or services (for example, video content, local business info, or product listings), you can reach out to the world by distributing it on Google Web Search.

The Loop

Using The Loop, WordPress processes each post to be displayed on the current page, and formats it according to how it matches specified criteria within The Loop tags.
