Missing Boostrap icons

  • We're using Bootstrap 2.0 icons as the "leader" characters that tell you what you'll find when you click the link. It works fairly well, but we're missing some very important symbols.
  • Here's an outline with examples.
  • Some are great, the camera for a photo is perfect. And recycle icon for redirects. A bookmark for a link type is pretty good.
  • But the icon for a feed is terrible. It should be the standard graphic for a feed.
  • And we're using GIFs for the wedges that indicate whether something is expanded or collapsed. It would be nice if there were Bootstrap icons for those.
  • Also If you look at the top of the page, you'll see a blue wedge that toggles the presence of the menu. I would love to see that be a flag, like the flags on mailboxes. Two icons, one up, and the other down. These symbols were used in early Mac desk accessories, and it felt great.
