    Hello — I am trying to add additional Font Awesome icons to the social menu header, and one of the social icons I’d like to add is Goodreads, which is a new icon in Font Awesome 5. My other Font Awesome icons have worked, but the Font Awesome 5 icon is showing up as a white rectangle*.

    Is there a way for me to fix this, or does this issue require a theme-wide update? I’m trying to keep all my changes in the custom CSS section so I can still update the theme without losing my customizations.

    Thanks for your help!

    * This is the CSS I am adding —
    .social-navigation li a[href*=”goodreads.com”]::before {
    content: “\f3a9”;
    }

  • I would suggest you to go though the following article.

    Thanks for your reply, but as far as I can tell following those instructions involve editing the actual theme, which would mean my changes would be thrown out whenever the theme is updated. I’d like to keep my website’s theme updated to the latest version.

    Hi there,

    Please use the v4.7 of Font Awesome.
    Our themes are not compatible with v5 yet.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hi, thanks for your response —

    I’ve been using v4.7 for my other social icons, and those all work great, but there’s no Goodreads icon in v4.7 — it’s a new icon for v5. The theme’s incompatibility with v5 is my unresolved problem. Will there be an update for Font Awesome 5 in the near future?

    Thanks!

    I agree, there were couple of icons that are only available in v5 of Font Awesome.

    Thanks for bringing this one up. I have forwarded this to our developers so they’ll check if this is something that can be added soon.

    You can follow the discussion here:

    Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.

    No problem — I’ll watch the discussion for info about when we might expect an update for v5. Thanks!
