Some issues with the dashicons page on

  • A few icons from the current WP version seems to be missing
  • the bbPress icon has the wrong code mentioned
  • the upcoming 5.5 ones are missing (so people do not create pull requests for ones already done)

Adding the 5.5+ dashicons will have to wait until Core is updated with the new dashicons, since we use trunk's dashicons.css file.

[9776]/[9777] were intended to allow adding the 5.5+ section and having some kind of note show up in the upper glyph section to indicate that it would only be available in 5.5 when using the search functionality.

Just came across this ticket. It does not appear that Dashicons has been updated for 5.5. I found, which lines up time wise and appears to be the update this ticket is referring to, but it was never put into the 5.5 milestone.

As this ticket is an enhancement ticket, a special exception would need to be made as feature requests and enhancements are not allowed after beta 1.

Is this dashicons update essential for 5.5?

The Dashicons font has been updated in trunk as of Core-48456.

Last time around, the new Dashicons were not added to the resource until after release. I'd be fine adding them before that as long as they are sufficiently flagged as unreleased. But I do think they should be added into the groups they will eventually live.

For the new icons coming from Gutenberg, I think there should be a new "Block editor" section added above TinyMCE for those. The bell icon can go in Notifications, and the rest can probably be placed in Miscellaneous.

Developer: Add dashicons introduced in WP 5.5.

  • Adds 2 new sections: Block Editor, Databases
  • Adds 71 new icons

Props casiepa, desrosj, coffee2code.
Fixes #5172.

@desrosj: Not sure if warrants updating, but the WP 5.5 field guide for the dashicons update missed a few icons.

Missing from field guide for the block editor:

  • dashicons-align-full-width
  • dashicons-align-wide
  • dashicons-button
  • dashicons-ellipsis
  • dashicons-heading

Also, a pair of counts were wrong:

  • field guide mentions 26 block editor icons, lists 27, but there were really 32 (the difference being the 5 listed above).
  • field guide mentions 65 new icons, but I count 71.

The service is defunct and an identical version of the dashicon was recently added for Google.
