Is it possible to get select_advanced to load font awesome icons so that the icons are visible in the select field. Or is there a working plugin / extension for Metabox that allows this feature?
In the js_options for the select_advanced field (select2) there is an option called 'templateResult' or 'templateSelection' which allows you to specify a js call back function to manipulate the option field html and display icons. However it does not seem to work 🙁
We don't have a field for icon picker yet. I think the best way to do that is creating a new field type. It gives you more flexibility to control the data you want. Using select_advanced might be limited.
Could you please share this how to get it done. I am not a developer so i might not be able to code but if there is step by step tutorial then i believe can do it. Or you can also share how the custom field work (you talked about earlier on this thread).
