Developing a WordPress plugin is hard work, and by the time you’re done, the little details can sometimes be overlooked, like the appearance of the plugin’s icon in the Dashboard.

By the way, have you noticed that the default Dashboard icons are not colored until you hover or click on them? Yeah, now try to ignore the few plugins you have installed with constantly colored icons. To help new developers with their plugin icons, Matthias Kretschmann has created a handy template for WordPress admin icons with tons of tips.
