Add-on Custom icon for the category

I'm not aware of an add-on but you can do it with CSS, for example:

This is one way of doing it - add this to EXTRA.css

.node.category.level_1.node_2 .categoryText {
background-color: #CC0000;
Change the node number for each category node id.
Amend the CSS to suit.

You will need to make changes to the other CSS which affects the category strip, such as removing the background image, etc.
An alternative method is to do this:

.nodeList .categoryStrip {
background: none !important;
border: none !important;
border-radius: none !important;

.node.category.level_1.node_2 {
background-color: #CC0000;
First remove all the styling from the category strip and then re-apply it individually.

Sorry Allan nothing against you, all the structure was there, just missing a little template.

So we implemented it in our last version of Nodes Icon Tweak, see HERE.
