Is it possible to import and use 3rd party icons on the front page widgets?

Using the Stats widget on the front page, I would like to use some 3rd party icons that I have downloaded as the icons I require are not available in the provided list ?

Ditto using the Our services widget.

Many thanks
Chris

Dear Chris,

Sydney Pro theme doesn’t have a feature to instantly import and use custom icons. However, there are some tutorials out there that will guide you to accomplish your objective, you can follow this one, go to “Adding Icon Fonts in WordPress Manually” section. To alter the icon code attributed to the widget’s element, you have to edit the respective widget file inside the “widgets” folder.

Many thanks,
can you briefly explain how to edit the widgets file please ?

Dear Chris,

Open the theme folder, and then open the “widgets” folder. In there, you’ll see all the widget files which their names are self-explanatory.

Note that your modifications in the widget files won’t last after theme update, as all files in the main theme will be overwritten. So you should take it at your own risk. After updating, you have to redo your modifications.
