Enhancing the visual experience of your WordPress posts and pages is crucial for practical web design. Incorporating icons is a powerful way to achieve this, as they add aesthetic appeal and improve communication by making content more engaging and easier to understand.

If you’re unsure how to add icons to your WordPress posts and pages, don’t worry—this guide is for you. By the end of this post, you’ll know exactly how to add icons effortlessly.

WordPress doesn’t have a default option for adding icons, but you can easily do it using a plugin. Here, I’ll be using the Ultimate Blocks plugin, which comes with an Icon block.

Let’s get started.

Step 1: Install the Ultimate Blocks Plugin

Ultimate Blocks is a versatile WordPress plugin designed to enhance the Block editor with a collection of powerful Gutenberg blocks, including an Icon block for adding icons effortlessly.

To install the plugin, go to your WordPress Dashboard and navigate to Plugins (1) > Add New Plugin (2). Then search for ‘Ultimate Blocks(3) and install & activate (4) the plugin.

Step 2: Insert the Icon Block

Go to the post/page where you want to add the icon. Once you’re in the editor, simply click on the + icon (1) and search for ‘Icon’ block (2). Then click on the ‘Icon’ block (3) to insert it.

Then click on the ‘Icon Library’ button.

You will find thousands of WordPress icons as well as Font Awesome icons too. You can browse icons through categories or search for your desired icon. 

To search for an icon, simply type your keyword in the search box, and you will find your icon. To insert an icon, click on it, and it will be inserted. 

Step 3: Customize the Icon

To customize the icon, click on the ‘Settings’ icon from the higher right-hand side corner. You’ll be able to change icon size and rotation from there.

From the styles tab, you can check color, border, and dimension settings.

That’s it. You’re icon is ready.

Final Words

I hope you find adding icons easier. You can also do more with the Ultimate Blocks plugin, as it provides you with 20+ awesome blocks. Give it a try to other blocks and explore your creativity in WordPress.
