The icons that Tiki uses in its interface are chosen from available icon sets, and the match isn't always the best. The proposal on this page is for Tiki to have a Tiki icon font set to provide icons made for our specific needs. This can probably be done using https://icomoon.io/app/#/select . We *just* need to decide on and create the glyphs we want to add.
Two paths to apply the icons:
- This font set would contain only Tiki-specific icons (glyphs) and would always be used by default (subject to admin option activation). Then the current icon set loading choice/procedure would be used (as selected on Look & Feel admin).
- Advantage: The Tiki custom icons would always be used regardless of the icon set choice on L&F admin.
- Disadvantage: Possible style inconsistency if, for example, a .png icon set where chosen on L&F admin.
- Or, the new Tiki icon font set would be a superset of an existing font set such as Font Awesome, made for example using the IcoMoon app (https://icomoon.io/app/#/select).
- Advantage: Style consistency within the set.
- Disadvantage: Choosing another icon set would cause the Tiki custom icons to not be used.
Please add to this list - text description and/or sketch, image, etc. - of icons that are missing or could be improved over what we are now using.
- Actual icon instead of "B" for the blog feature.
- Webservices (has currently the same cog icon as "General")
- a 'Collaboration icon (can't upload any pics to File galleries as I keep getting 'cross-forgery bla, bla, bla'
- an 'Enterprise Grade' icon
- a 'Wiki' icon
- a 'Calendar' icon (or a better one at least
- Login / Logout icon
- Profile (Tiki configuration) icon
- Page actions menu (wikiactions top menu) the actual cog (more like setting) is not appropriate
- Action menu elsewhere the actual wrench (more like configuration) is not appropriate
- Modules icon, the actual is confusing
- Something to distinct Structures and Categories
- Banners icon (the actual is a movie strip ?)
- Semantic links (the actual is a stroke with an arrow on each side ?)
- An upgrade icon (vs a reload actually used in many place I think)
- For the "Page actions" dropdown, an "Editcetera" icon that is general enough to represent the page actions including edit, export as PDF, print, monitor, etc.
