What does the collaboration entail?
From now on, OceanWP templates will include Flaticon icons in their designs. One of the most frequently used themes and the biggest icon database in the world are coming together to make your life easier. Sounds good, right? The templates also include images and other Freepik resources, such as photos, illustrations, graphics and other vectors. All ready to publish whenever you want.
How does it work?
Ocean Images is a special feature that is now available to users with the Ocean Core extensions bundle for companies and agencies. This feature allows you to import Flaticon or Freepik resources directly to your WordPress media library. It’s easy to set up:
1. Enable the Flaticon and Freepik modules in Ocean WP
Go to the OceanWP theme panel in the WordPress toolbar and click on Ocean Images. There you’ll find the drop-down menus, where you can enable the Freepik and Flaticon modules. You can install one or both of them. You decide! Remember, you must save the changes for them to work.
2. Find the resource you need
Once installed, go to the media library in the WordPress menu and explore all the available resources in Ocean Images. Don’t forget to refresh the page after installing the modules from point 1 so that the new features appear.
You’ll have access to the whole Flaticon icon library. In other words, the world’s largest collection of icons.
As you know, the use of icons and other graphic resources is an essential and highly important part of any digital product. With this agreement, we’ll save you the job of having to successfully design them, optimize them and save them to your WordPress library.
3. Focus on the design and nothing else
You won’t have to worry about anything but creating your website and making it as eye-catching as possible. Thanks to the collaboration between Flaticon and OceanWP you won’t have to pay attention to any other details. It’s all ready for you to start designing!
If what you need is to use an OceanWP template with the maximum number of built-in graphic resources, then here you have it! All OceanWP templates are ready to be published as soon as you’ve finished customizing them to your liking.
Until now, you had to fill in the image and icon placeholders yourself after installing a theme. But after the agreement, all the images included in your chosen template are ready to be published without further complications, or you can replace them with another if you prefer: you simply have to browse the OceanWP and Flaticon or Freepik media library and replace whichever resource you want.
At Flaticon and OceanWP, our shared goal is to facilitate the creation of amazing websites and make them available to the greatest number of professionals, regardless of their experience. And to ensure that your customers and visitors see the most eye-catching result possible.
Make the most of these additions and take your website creation with WordPress to the next level. You supply the ideas and skills; we’ll supply the tools and resources.
