On profile and group pages, you'll see icon bars like the one shown above. You can change these icons to anything you want, here's how...

Start by finding the CSS selector for the icon you want to change. You will need the id of the <li > element associated with the icon. On profile pages it will end with "-personal-li" and on group pages it will end with "-groups-li". The easiest way to do this is to install Google Chrome web browser, and then right-click on the icon you want to change and choose "Inspect Element" you'll see something like this: inspect-icon

In your WordPress installation folder, navigate to: wp-content/themes/kleo/assets/font and find the config.json file. Go to fontello.com and from the tools menu, choose Import: fontello-import When prompted, upload your config.json file and the fontello website will highlight all the icons that KLEO provides. Next, click on the Customise Codes tab and you'll see a list of the icons with their unique codes below them. fontello-customise-codes Find the icon you want to use and write down it's code (the code always starts with "E").

The format of your CSS will be slightly different depending on whether you're changing a profile icon or a group icon. In the example below, I'm changing the LOCATION icon for both profile (location-personal-li) and group (nav-gmw-group-location-groups-li) pages to icon number E868 (a map pin).

COPY CODE
/* Profiles: LOCATION icon */
#buddypress div#item-nav ul #location-personal-li a:before { content: "\E868"; }

/* Groups: LOCATION icon */
#buddypress div#item-nav ul #nav-gmw-group-location-groups-li a:before { content: "\E868"; }

Note how there's a # in front of the icon id, and a \ in front of the icon code.

Important: Make sure that Kleo Child is the active theme (in Appearance > Themes) first!!

In the WordPress admin area, go in to Appearance > Editor and edit the Kleo Child: Stylesheet (style.css) - it looks like this:

COPY CODE
/*
Theme Name:     Kleo Child
Theme URI:
Description:    Child theme for Kleo
Author:         SeventhQueen
Author URI:     http://seventhqueen.com
Template:       kleo
Tags:  one-column, two-columns, right-sidebar, fluid-layout, custom-menu, featured-images, post-formats, sticky-post, translation-ready
License: GNU General Public License
License URI: license.txt
*/

/*
* Please add your custom styles below
*/

Add in the CSS code you made earlier and save it.

After clearing your browser cache, go in to the front end and refresh the profile or group page to check it's working. If it's not working, common mistakes include:

  • Forgetting to put the # in front of the icon id or mis-typing the id
  • Forgetting to put the \ in front of the icon code
