    The Genericons icon font for icons used as design elements so their colours can be changed was added by Syahir in Version 1.9.2 of Graphene WordPress Theme.

    Genericons Version 3.0.2 (November 1, 2013) includes some new icons and updates.


    Social icons: Skype, Digg, Reddit, Stumbleupon, Pocket

    New generic icons: heart, lock and print

    New editing icons: code, bold, italic, image

    New interaction icons: subscribe, unsubscribe, subscribed, reply all, reply, flag


    The hyperlink icon has been updated to be clearer, chunkier

    The “home” icon has been updated for style, size and clarity

    The email icon has been updated for style and clarity, and to fit with the new subscribe icons

    The document icon has been updated for style

    The “pin” icon has been updated for style and clarity

    The Twitter icon has been scaled down to fit with the other social icons
