Where are icons stored in Joomla?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 8:24 am

Icons are stored in the Joomla! system in a folder called “images”. Each icon file is named after the icon itself, with the extension .gif or .

png. The location of this folder can be found in the “System” menu of the Joomla! administrative interface.

PRO TIP: This is a question that often comes up for new Joomla users. Icons are not stored in Joomla. They are actually stored in your template. So, if you change templates, the icons will change as well.

If you want to use an icon from this folder in your own web page, you need to first convert it to a format that Joomla! can use. The easiest way to do this is to use the “Image Editor” tool that is included with Joomla! (you can find it in the “Extras” menu). Once you have converted the icon, you can use it in your web page by inserting it into the “images” folder, and referring to it using the name of the file, without the .

gif or .png extension.
