Font Awesome Field

Description

Add a Font Awesome icon to your post with this awesome standalone custom metabox.

Font Awesome gives you scalable vector icons that can instantly be customized — size, color, drop shadow, and anything that can be done with the power of CSS.

For developers it is easy to use the field in your theme. With the template functions the_fa() for echoing and get_ga() for returning the icon within the WordPress loop.

A handy Font Awesome shortcode is also included. Add an icon to your post by inserting [fa icon="fa-gear"], where the attribute is the name of the Font Awesome icon. You can also insert the current post icon by using the shortcode [fa].

Installation

  1. Upload font-awesome-field to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Select a field from the Font Awesome Field in your edit posts screen.
  4. Place <?php the_fa(); ?> inside the WordPress loop in your templates.
