How to Display Tick Mark in WordPress Posts and Pages

You’re not sure how to display tick mark in WordPress posts and pages, right?

Every now and then, we get users that write to us hoping we can help them add tick marks and special characters to their WordPress pages and posts. Doing so can really bring out some cool designs, or complement the design you already worked to hard to create. Well, the procedure is dead simple and all you need to do is to put a simple HTML decimal corresponding to the tick mark.

Where can you use this?

You can use it to create a checklist and it can be implemented within pricing or feature comparison tables, posts, pages, below the image or after the image, or you can even use the tick mark as bullet points.

By default, WordPress don’t offer any simple button to load this icon. There are many little icons and marks are available at the Editor for both Posts and Pages but those are missing the simple tick mark. All you can find there is a Square Root symbol that looks close to the tick one, but it’s still far away.

If you wish to access those special character sets, then click on the little Omega symbol in the second bar available at the top of the Editor. You’ll find it next to the Clear Formatting button.
