Moving Category Icon
This is done via the Results Layout in the Experience / Results tab. You can move around the shortcodes and HTML elements via the text area interface to place the icon element wherever you’d like it. You will need the  Experience add-on to manipulate the results layout (or have the MYSLP Professional level or higher)

The exact layout depends on the plugin style selected. Newer plugin styles have a shortcode to place the Category icon array in a specific location. If the iconarray shortcode is not present, it will be added to the very end of the Results Layout setting if you’ve selected to “show the category icons” in the admin panel.
