    Hi @wadams92101

    Yah, there is no admin setting to enable/disable those icons, is there?

    You can easily get rid of them though with a bit of custom CSS added to your theme's style-sheet:

    #wdqs-dashboard-widget .wdqs-type-switch { background:none; padding: 3px 8px 4px 0; }

    Note that I've included an adjustment for the padding to compensate for the absence of the icons. Feel free to re-adjust to suit. :slight_smile:

    Sorry for the delay in replying. Thanksgiving weekend and Android stuff kept me rather occupied. :slight_smile:

    It's working at most of my subdomains but a few are hanging on to the old icons.

    That's likely the CSS in the themes that are active on those sites that are overriding stuff. I'd need to see those sites to be able to give you something better.

    Also, it doesn't seem to work in the Status Update entry form on the dashboard. Any idea why that might be happening?

    Yup, wp-admin uses a completely different style-sheet, and is not theme-dependent. Fortunately, our Ultimate Branding plugin has an Admin CSS module that enables you to add CSS that is applied to the admin areas in your entire network.

    Activate that module and add the same CSS as above to it. Done deal. :slight_smile:
