How do add icons to the buttons?

Just enter the name of the icon into the ‘icon’ parameter. You can find a name of all the available icons here: Font Awesome Cheatsheet

For example: If you want to add a star icon to the button, just add icon=”star” to the shortcode. There’s no need to prefix it with ‘icon-‘, if you do, the icon won’t display.

If you look inside of the /css/font-awesome.css file, at the very bottom you’ll find some social icons you can also use.
