Is there a clean way to use SVG icons for the menuIconClass and subMenuIconClass entries in responsive-menus.php?
WordPress doesn't support SVGs natively, but I use SVG images and icons wherever I can in my WordPress sites. I use this plugin to add SVG support: https://wordpress.org/plugins/svg-support/
Thanks, Victor. There's a lot of good information there.
I'm actually trying to find out if there is a way to reference an SVG icon through the configuration/responsive-menus.php script. I'm looking at the genesis Sample theme specifically, but assume other recent Genesis themes use the similiar configuration.
The script returns an array (not full code):
$settings = array(
'mainMenu' => __( 'Menu', 'genesis-sample' ),
'menuIconClass' => 'dashicons-before dashicons-menu',
'subMenu' => __( 'Submenu', 'genesis-sample' ),
'subMenuIconClass' => 'dashicons-before dashicons-arrow-down-alt2',
Since they are referred to by classnames, it appears that using icon fonts is the only way to reference icons. I was hoping that there was a way to reference SVG icons.
I was looking icons in Genesis since WordPress announced the move use the Icon Component (see https://wptavern.com/wordpress-dashicons-project-to-discontinue-development-in-favor-of-new-icon-component).
