Custom Icons for Elementor


Enables the user to add their own custom icons to the built in Elementor icon controls and elements, thereby removing the reliance on FontAwesome and providing a better opportunity for branding with custom icon sets on your websites. Works exclusively through the use of Fontello’s free icon font service.

Plugin Features

  • Añade iconos ilimitados a tu web a través de los paquetes de fuentes de Fontello
  • View the icons in each uploaded pack, delete individual packs if desired
  • Use icons anywhere you would normally with the default Elementor icon selectors

Please note, this plugin requires the Elementor Page Builder to be installed and active. Elementor is a free plugin.

This plugin relies on a third party service for it’s functionality provided by Fontello. No private information is sent to their server, rather their provided webfont downloads are what’s used to add fonts to this plugin.

¿Qué puedo hacer con este plugin?

Puedes añadir tus propios iconos desde Fontello a Elementor (versión gratuita y pro). Desde fuentes de iconos existentes a iconos personalizados en SVG. Olvídate de problemas con CSS o elementos de imágenes. Ahora está todo listo.

¿Puedo subir más de un paquete de Fontello a un sitio?

¡Puedes apostar que sí! Sube tantos como quieras, todos funcionarán. Sin embargo, asegúrate que le das un nombre único a cada fuente (la caja de texto junto al botón de descarga en Fontello)

¿Cómo puedo eliminar los iconos de Font Awesome del selector de iconos por defecto, para que solo mis iconos personalizados estén disponibles?

Añade esto a tu archivo «functions.php» en un tema hijo:

add_filter('eci_drop_fa', '__return_true');

¡AYUDA! ¿Por qué no funciona?

Existe una pequeña, pequeña posibilidad de que este plugin no funcione en tu alojamiento web. Está provocado por 2 causas, generalmente: una regla de `mod_security` que bloquea la subida de archivos ZIP o que falten las bibliotecas de PHP necesarias para descomprimir los archivos (ZipArchive). Hay buenas noticias: tu proveedor puede corregir ambas de manera sencilla. Si lo rechaza, plantéate migrar a un proveedor de alojamiento más moderno.

This plugin is really helpfull, when you want to use more icons. For the first time it was little bit difficult to orient how it works, but later its great and really easy to use 🙂 I highly recommend it 🙂 And main reason - its free 😀

And it works with all Elementor support plugins ie not created by Elementor (which the Elementor native feature doesn't). Great work. Thanks a lot.

Thanks for the speed in the reflections (for the Elementor 2.6 update)

It does what it advertises. Pretty straighforward. And for those among us who value a little helper tool which helps to get additional custom icons in the icon selector drop downs from elementor, then this fits just perfect. It's lightweight and relatively easy to setup. I prefer to package my icons as fontello package and use it the way this plugin offers, instead of manually fiddeling around with additional markup and css. Just one thing to keep in mind (which is also a suggestion). Do not regenerate the css if not really needed. It unfortunately swipes away your whole config then and you're forced to setup all icons again by going into every element on every page and re-selecting your icons. A simple JS Alert would have been helpful to warn me upfront about that 😀
