I see this on the features page for this plugin: “MasterPress generates CSS-based sprite-maps for admin menu icons, with grayscale (idle) and color (active) states, so nothing looks out of place.” – but not what we need to do to make that work. Should I be creating icons using some special tool? To some specific dimensions/colors (I know they should be 16px square usually but does that work for retina?)?

Sorry if this has been asked before, I’m not seeing a way to search these forums and Google isn’t as much help as I hoped it’d be. 🙂

AGH once again I figured it out right after I asked the question – just upload a full-color 16×16 png icon and the grayscale is taken care of. I’m not sure if the retina stuff works (don’t have a new mac) but I’ll assume it’s fine.

All good, it’s a good question anyway. With retina, we do intend to add support for adding a 32×32 icon at some stage. We do make the icons look a bit sharper by scaling them with nearest neighbour on a retina mac, as scaling of pixelated images like icons doesn’t work well by default there.

The whole menu icons thing might be shaken up a bit too with a future release of WordPress. It looks like they’ll move toward simpler vector-based icons soonish, as is the trend of the moment.

Latest From the Blog

MasterPress 1.4.1 is now available

27th May 2024

This update addresses backwards compatibility issues that were introduced in the previous update. There were some edge cases where PHP 7 had issues and it didn’t work at all on PHP 5.6. We have now changed it so that the PHP 8 compatibility changes will now only affect PHP 8 and will be more thorough… 

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the hosted service.
