Support » Plugin: Font Awesome » Even though it doesnt work out of the box, still a good option

  • You can get the short codes to work if you are determined.

    Use this to get the latest version of icons from Font Awesome:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/dequeue-font-awesome/

    Then instead of following the instructions, use short codes with the FA prefix (not “icon”):

    [icon name=fa-phone]

    Then add this piece of CSS–

    i{
    display: inline-block;
    font-family: FontAwesome;
    font-style: normal;
    font-weight: normal;
    line-height: 1;
    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
    -moz-osx-font-smoothing: grayscale;
    }


    to your theme or add it with a CSS plug-in like this:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-add-custom-css/

    It is worth it for the short codes. Short of cracking open the PHP, this should get most by until the plug-in is updated. I’d even recommend dropping the ‘icon’ prefix for the FA in the future to the author.
