The Simple Icons shortcode allows users to display icons on their website. Users can customize the icon’s appearance by specifying the icon slug, color, size, and CSS class. The shortcode fetches the relevant icon from the Simple Icons library. It also allows caching of the icon and inclusion of a title tag inside the SVG. If no name is provided, the output is set to false. Shortcode: [simple_icon]

Shortcode: [simple_icon]


Here is a list of all possible simple_icon shortcode parameters and attributes:

  • name – the slug of the desired icon (for example, ‘facebook’)
  • color – sets the color of the icon (for example, ‘blue’, ‘#fff’)
  • size – defines the size of the icon (for example, ’24px’, ‘1.5rem’)
  • class – applies a custom CSS class to the icon
  • cache – determines if the icon should be cached or not
  • title_tag – decides if a tag should be included within the SVG</li> </ul> <div style="height:5px" aria-hidden="true" class="wp-block-spacer"></div> <h3 class="wp-block-heading">Examples and Usage</h3> <p><strong>Basic example</strong> – Display a simple icon with the name parameter</p> <pre class="wp-block-code"><code lang="php" class="language-php">[simple_icon name='facebook' /]</code></pre> <p><strong>Advanced examples</strong></p> <p>Display an icon with a specific color and size</p> <pre class="wp-block-code"><code lang="php" class="language-php">[simple_icon name='twitter' color='blue' size='24px' /]</code></pre> <p>Display an icon with a custom CSS class</p> <pre class="wp-block-code"><code lang="php" class="language-php">[simple_icon name='instagram' class='my-custom-class' /]</code></pre> <p>Display an icon without caching it</p> <pre class="wp-block-code"><code lang="php" class="language-php">[simple_icon name='linkedin' cache=false /]</code></pre> <p>Display an icon without the title tag inside SVG</p> <pre class="wp-block-code"><code lang="php" class="language-php">[simple_icon name='youtube' title_tag=false /]</code></pre> <p>In these examples, replace ‘facebook’, ‘twitter’, ‘instagram’, ‘linkedin’, and ‘youtube’ with the name of the icon you want to display.
