    Hi. I have tried this guide tip but it doesn’t work:

    Neither of these html-snippets in my content (text-area) present an icon in the rendered page:

    (I had to add a semicolon to be able to post this here)

    <;span class=”genericon genericon-twitter”>

    (btw: in the guide the forward slash is missing)

    <svg class="genericons-neue genericons-neue-search" width="16px" height="16px"><use xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:href="genericons-neue.svg#search"></use></svg>

    (the latter is the suggestion from genericons.com)

    Can you give me a hint, what I am doing wrong?




    Correction: It does work, only that you can’t see the result in the visual pane of the WP page editor.

    What I entered in the quote area above is this – except for the x letters:
    <xspan class=”genericon genericon-search”><x/span>

    You can’t enter the code directly here in this forum, probably because it is made with the WXT also. Not really practical for a support forum 🙁



    To post HTML in this forum you have to use the preformatted paragraph style like below

    <span class="genericon genericon-search"></span>

    Code is supposed to work, But I found it unreliable.

    Preformatted works for me , not sure why it does not work for you, may be it is browser related.

    May be it is browser related. this appears to be a weakness of BBPress which is used for this forum.
