    Hello,

    Thanks for reading my post. My website relates to guitar playing. I am trying to get some guitar icons on my site without success lol. I have been looking at a site called “flaticon.com”

    I can’t seem to get this working. I want to use the icon feature on GP where you just paste in the SVG icon HTML code instead of having to load an entire icon font file.

    What am I missing here? What am I doing wrong? Also, do have any suggestions to which website(s) I should be looking at to find these SVG HTML icons? Where does this magical mysterious code come from? I have been searching for days with no luck.

    Thanks,

    -Warren

    Hi,

    From the same site you’ve mentioned, I’ve easily found an svg file of a guitar.

    <svg version="1.1" id="Capa_1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" x="0px" y="0px"

    You just have to download the svg version of the icons you like from the site mentioned.

    You then open the SVG file with a text editor and copy + paste the <svg>...</svg> contents of the file to your site.
