The new icon is for a social media project I'm building. I've attached an svg file with my ticket submission. Sorry wasn't sure if I should label the site Social-media prematurely because it's still in its infancy.

Thanks Dono12.

I'm unsure what the icon represents. It appears to be a box with a rough edge. Can you explain more?

It's the letter M with film strips at the top and bottom.

Hey @Dono12. I think what you are looking for is a way to add your own icon for a plugin. You can do that with the icon_url param in add_menu_page.

I'm not well versed in PHP, so I couldn't figure out how to write the function properly to achieve what I'm trying to do. I assumed that I would have to submit my custom icon file and it would simply be listed among the Dashicons on the WP Icon page. Thus giving me the ability to call it in my CSS like so :

#wpadminbar #wp-admin-bar-my-sites>.ab-item:before,
#wpadminbar #wp-admin-bar-site-name>.ab-item:before

{
content: "\f488";
top: 2px;
}.

I want to replace the first icon in the wp-admin-bar menu on the front-end, which is typically the image of a gear. I know I can change it for something else from the list of Icons on this web page: http://melchoyce.github.io/dashicons/, by simply changing content: "\f488"; to a generated CSS from one of the Icons listed.
Can you please help me with the proper way to write the function and how to call my custom Dashicon.
