Uploading special character to use as colophon

  1. Is there a way to upload an icon from Word to use as a colophon (also called a dingbat) to denote the close of a blog post? The Twenty Twelve template allows the insertion of only a limited number of HTML special characters. Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is sketchesbybaz.com.

  2. Just upload it as an image and insert it centered from the media library every time.

  3. "The Twenty Twelve template allows the insertion of only a limited number of HTML special characters."
    That's not correct - themes have nothing to do with what you can insert in a post. You can insert any icon for which there's an HTML entity or decimal code. Here's some dingbats:

  4. These are not working for me. When I type the HTML code from the site list suggested, the character looks fine in the "text" view of the post (I tried ❡), but in the "visual" it shows as an empty square. I use Chrome, so I tried Mozilla, but the same thing happened. I customized the Twenty Twelve body text to Calluna. Could it be a limitation of that font?

  5. I think it's possible what you described could be a limitation of the font, but it could also be something else. I did check the text of an example post from your blog at http://sketchesbybaz.com/2012/12/21/life-or-theatre/ and I see that you are using this HTML at the end of your post:

    <span style="color: #e2aa1c; font-size: small;">¶</span>

    And it's looks correct to me when I look at it using Chrome 23 or Firefox 17.0.1.

  6. The ¶ character http://sketchesbybaz.com/2012/12/21/life-or-theatre/ still looks okay to me. Are you still having trouble, or is everything okay now?

  7. Yes, thanks for responding to my question! I really appreciate the helpfulness of the WP staff.

  8. yay !
