Getwid Custom Post Type block

I was asked if there were an alphabetical list of all the posts tested on this site. There isn’t.

Experiment: Add custom icons to Getwid

Getwid only load fonts on demand, and thus it’s possible to reduce the page size a bit by adding a custom icon font only including the icons needed. Using the code snippet below, I added four icons from IcoMoon.

add_action( 'getwid/icons-manager/init', 'my_theme_getwid_add_custom_icons' );

function my_theme_getwid_add_custom_icons( $manager ) {
	$custom_icons = [
		'icons' => [
			"Icomoon-icons" => array(
		'handle' => 'Icomoon-icons',
		'src' => '/wp-content/uploads/icomoon/style.css',
		'deps' => null,
		'ver' => '1.0.0'

	$manager->registerFont('Icomoon-icons', $custom_icons);

How to add icons from IcoMoon to Getwid

  1. Download custom icon font from
  2. Extract and upload contents of to /wp-content/uploads/icomoon
  3. Modify $custom_icons in snippet above to include all icon names
  4. Add snippet to functions or use Code Snippets
  5. Edit posts with Getwid blocks to use IcoMoon Icons instead.

Optional: Convert TTF to Woff2 using for better compression. Modify style.css accordingly.
