Hello, community. I am hoping you can provide me with some assistance as I pose these series of questions. Thanks so much!
First, a little background...
We utilize some code (I believe generously borrowed from Kenneth Larsen) to add a few menu items to our menu in Canvas. Because we support a district of five individual colleges in our instance, these items need to remain in our menu and cannot be moved to the updated Help Menu. Also, we previously decided to not include any icons with these items (see graphic to the right).
With the update to the course menu and it now being collapsible (see https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-8403#jive_content_id_Global_Navigation within Canvas Production Release Notes (2016-10-29)), we have now realized that the text is removed (makes sense), so we must have icons present.
I have gone through several pages and sites, but I still need assistance with adding an image (I presume svg) as my icon.
I found Josh Blumberg's post on Has anyone been working on scripts for the new Beta UI? (his code can be found here) - and while this utilizes a svg image, but it creates a popup window. Although, in reading his notes, it says it is generalized so it can create items with or without the modal window.
