Icons can convert a site from looking plain to modern and professional really easily. We use Icons a lot in our themes and websites we've built in the past because they can be really quite useful as well as looking great.
We've spoken in the past about how images on your web pages are important, however sometimes Icons can be more effective if you only have a little room and want to visualize a specific message.
Want to give your website a visual boost?
If you are using Weebly and just aren't happy with the lack of icons and graphical features available in the standard dashboard and apps, then we've found a great free resource where you can download and use thousands of great icons.
