As far as we know that WordPress plugin developers had previously launched a plugin let’s say MP6 WordPress plugin which on using breaks the wp-admin UI and it simply modifies the admin design in just a few minutes with an eye-catching admin panel design. If you remember that the icons that were being used to modify the design were pretty awesome. In this article, let me show you quickly and easily add icons to your custom post types in WordPress. Built for the new dashboard design that should come out with 3.7.
Post Type Icons is a WordPress plugin which on installing, gives you an extra menu.
Go to Tools → Post Type Icons
Now, in your theme or a plugin, set the icons in one of the following ways:
i). Call the function
pti_set_post_type_icon( $post_type, $icon_name );, e.g.
pti_set_post_type_icon( 'event', 'calendar' );
ii). Using the global variable
$pti_icons, set the array key => value pair such that
'post_type' => 'icon-name', e.g.
$GLOBALS['pti_icons']['event'] = 'calendar';
