Weaver Xtreme uses an icon font set called “Genericons” for the Menus, Post Format Icons, the post meta info icons, and by Weaver Xtreme Plus for social icons. This font set is always loaded, and thus is available for your use as well. You can easily insert any one of these icons into your content.
Automattic (WordPress parent organization) has apparently discontinued supporting Genericons used by Weaver Xtreme. Instead, they are supporting a new version called Genericons Neue which do not include social icons.
Weaver Xtreme will continue to support Genericons for the foreseeable future to maintain backward compatibility. As always, the font definition files for Genericons are added by Weaver Xtreme as they are used in several places by the theme (e.g., Post Formats). Also, note that some of the social icons provided may now obsolete.
You can add a genericon anywhere in you content by adding this HTML <span class=”genericon genericon-iconname> in your content. You will have to use the Text view to add that, and if you then switch back to Visual, you can lose the custom HTML. As an alternative, you can use the Weaver Xtreme [ span ] shortcode.
For example, to display the Twitter icon (), add <span class=”genericon genericon-twitter”><span> to your content. Use the following table to get the name of each Genericon. You can also add in-line styling to the <span> to control styling. For example, the above Twitter example was generated using: <span class=”genericon genericon-twitter” style=”font-size:20px;margin-right:0px;”></span>
