Icon fields use FontAwesome 3.2.1 assets - see here for the full range of available icons. Be sure to type the whole name (e.g: icon-tasks, icon-search, etc) for the icon to work!


NOTES:
  • Several of the fields in this tab are directly tied to options in the Settings tab and other areas - therefore, changes saved in one can affect the other. For instance, changing the copyright text in the footer on the Settings tab will change the content in the ‘copyright.content’ field in this tab and vice versa!
