Plugin / Bootstrap Glyphicons in Visual Editor

Jon @ 509Tech



Adds the Glyphicons included with Twitter Bootstrap 3 to the WordPress visual editor. All credit goes to those 2 places for their awesome work!

Instructions for use:

Method A (Visual Editor – Preferred):

  1. Edit/Add any Page or Post

Insert shortcode into your post.
[glyphicons icon=”iconname”]

Method C (Manual into Theme):
