    Hi,
    I tried to custom my form 'Go back button' with an icon.
    I tried to use the bootstrap 'glyphicon-step-backward' without success.

    Can you document this option please ?
    Thanks

    dont think that's a valid bootstrap class - they have pretty good documentation on the various classes you can use and then of course the actual classes available depend on the Joomla template you are using, so documenting it is pretty difficult.
    but in general a bootstrap 2.3 icon class is in the format

    icon-foo

    not "glyphicon-foo"

    Rob,
    I found this icon reference at http://getbootstrap.com/components/
    and thought they were all included in Joomla Bootstrap.
    It's not the case.
    And Joomla site doesn't provide any information about icons :mad:

    If this can help, after a long research, I found that :
    Glyphicons are built from a simple png-file, while Icomoon is a font. This means that Icomoon icons are scalable and will always look good, while the Glyphicons will look bad when made bigger.
    Also Icomoon will look better on high pixel density smartphones displays.

    If anyone has more informations...

    Rob if you agree, I could add link in wiki

    Sure that would be great to add a link in the wiki, its an absolute pain the various differences between the icon libraries - sigh!
