Add icon and emoji in Cargo Collective Site

Cargo Site tutorial, Cargo 2, Cargo 3

Add icons and emojis in Cargo Collective might be difficult for some people but let me tell you it is way more easy than your thoughts.

In this blog, we are going to see how to do this in both Cargo 2 and Cargo 3 Site editors.

So let’s get started🚀

What are emoji?

Emojis are small image icons used alongside text to convey emotions and other expressions. They originated from representing facial expressions with text symbols in early internet communication, known as smileys. Over time, these evolved into graphical representations called emoticons, emojis, and other names.

They have been part of online communication since the late 90s, gradually adopted by various platforms on the web and mobile devices. Cargo sites embraced modern emoji characters as well, following a similar evolution.

What are icons?

Icons are little pictures that stand for things or actions on computer screens. They help you know what to do or where to go when you’re using a website or an app.

They started as basic pictures but have gotten fancier over time. You can find them everywhere online because they make it easier for everyone to understand and use websites and apps.

On cargo sites, icons help you know what different buttons or sections do. A little picture of a shopping cart means you can buy things, or a picture of a house means you can go back to the homepage.
