    If you go to and scroll down to the bottom of the homepage you will see I am using the shortcode:

    [three_fourth first] and am trying to change the icon for the tabs. Here’s one of the current codes [sidebar_tab icon=’Paint_Brush.png’ title=”Lodging”] . I created a paw-print.png to replace it. I uploaded it to media and changed ‘Paint_Bruhs.png’ to ‘paw-print.png’ and it left a red circle with an x in it. I also tried the complete url in WP and it did the same thing.

    Can you help me with this?


    Hi there,

    You need to upload the icon directly into your themeroot/wp-content/themes/choices/images/icons (through to your ftp) (I think…but it seems your paint brush icon is working properly)

    If this happends again, delete your cache en reload the page again.

    A tip is to keep your file name’s consistent.




    Hi meezie,

    Kiwy is correct in that you need to put the icon into your icons folder and then you’ll be able to use that file name in the shortcode.





    Here is the link to where I uploaded the icon:

    Here is the code for the welcome page:

    Where exactly do I paste:

    Thanks for your help.


    In the shortcode you would put paw-print.png instead of the png that is already in it. I don’t know where in that whole page you want the paw print icon to be so I can’t say exactly.




    Here is where I replaced paw-print.png:

    [three_fourth first]

    [sidebar_tab_container initial_open=”1″ boxed=’false’ ]

    [sidebar_tab icon=’paw-print.png’ title=”Lodging”]

    Go to and see what it is doing.


    I see the issue, the actual folder where the icons are is icons/iconbox not just icons. So you need to put the image into the same folder where the others are:

    Then the paw-print.png will automatically be picked up as soon as the image file is in the iconbox folder on your server.
