Icons are great for your website when you want to add emphasis to the content you create. Some examples would be adding a Phone icon next to your contact info, adding an envelope icon next to your contact email, or a calendar next to your appointments options.

In this article, we will learn How to Add an Icon and How to manage their settings. For more detailed help about adding Images checkout: Adding And Editing Images (VIDEO)
