The Elegant Icon Font – 360 Of The Best Free Icons For The Modern Web
We have set out to create the most beautiful, elegant and complete icon font on the web…for free! We have been struggling to find the best icon font to use in our own projects, so we decided to create our own instead. This font will be used in our themes, and we will continue to update the collection to satisfy the needs our designs. Unlike traditional graphics, these icons are housed within a font file, which means they are vector based and can expand and contract without quality degradation. The result is crisp, beautiful graphics on any display (including Retina displays). Furthermore, these icons have been optimized with pixel-perfect detail for 16px, and all multiples of 16px (32px, 64px, etc). Download The Icons Why Icon Fonts Are Awesome Icon fonts are great because they are flexible and fast loading.

Then, by using the autoplay attribute, the voice is played when the element loads. Reload the page to hear it again. In the following demo, we define a different language by using the accent attribute. <voice-player id="mi-elemento" accent="es-ES" text="Me gusta la gasolina"></voice-player><script>var form = document.querySelector('#mi-form'), element = document.querySelector('#mi-elemento'); form.addEventListener('submit', function(e) { e.preventDefault(); element.speak(); }); </script> In the following demo, the text attribute is set according to the input value.

Changing the Featured Blog Post Image Size in Divi 2.0 The popular Divi 2.0 WordPress theme from Elegant Themes includes a really nifty Page Builder that makes creating custom layouts simple and easy for anyone. The built-in Blog Module for the Page Builder allows you to quickly set up a nice Blog page for your WordPress site with a listing of your blog posts. Unfortunately, it only has two layout options: Fullwidth or Grid. What if you want to change the size of your featured post thumbnail image in the blog layout so that it floats to the left or right of the post excerpt instead of full width above it? I was surprised to find that achieving this basic blog layout was not clearly documented. To create a smaller featured image size and cause the Blog Module to use it, all I had to do was add the following code to my functions.php file: Now WordPress generated a custom featured post image that was the correct width and height dimensions (e.g. 320px by 260px) and the Blog Module used it as the featured image! ****** Update 10/28/2014 ******

Elegant Tweaks | Featured images vs grab the first post image Elegant Themes gives you a few options for displaying images on blog posts as well as blog and category pages and using the Divi blog module. It’s much easier to achieve your desired layout if you have a basic understanding of how the images will be generated and displayed BEFORE you start creating blog posts. The purpose of this tutorial is to provide the basics to get you started. Featured Images If you set a featured image for a blog post, your theme will default to this image when viewing the post itself and will use the thumbnail of this image when viewing blog pages, category pages, and the Divi blog module. Removing featured image thumbnails from preview pages You can turn the featured image off by going to the Epanel->Layout Settings->General Settings and disabling “Show Thumbs on Index pages”. Removing featured image from blog posts Most people want the featured image displayed in both places so the default settings are usually ideal and none of the changes above need to be made.
