Support » Plugin: Expand Divi » Font Awesome Icon Conflict with WP Discuz

  • Resolved nelsonleemiller


    Hi there,
    First of all, thank you for the AWESOME plugin. You can see how I’m using it here: [ redundant link removed ]

    There is a problem with Font Awesome icons, the ones used in the author profile. They do not show when I active the plugin WP Discuz. However, when I go into their plugin and disable font awesome, then theirs stop working and yours do. Here is note about this in their settings:

    “wpDiscuz uses icons provided by Font Awesome version 5 . In case, the current active WordPress theme already loads Font Awesome CSS lib, you can disable built-in wpDiscuz Font Awesome lib. Please don’t disable this lib if other loaded css lib version is lower than 5.0.10.”

    So I believe the issue here is that you both have a different version of Font Awesome. I would love if you could update that to match and avoid this conflict.

    EDIT: If I add this CSS, 95% of the icons in both plugins work.

    .fa, .far, .fas {
    font-family: FontAwesome;

    I honestly don’t see the issue when testing locally. Both icons are showing up ok to me.
    What I noticed wrong with wpDiscuz is that they’re using wpdiscuz-font-awesome as handle, which means if another plugin is loading FontAwesome, you will see it loading twice. They need to drop the wpdiscuz- part, not sure but they could have a good reason for doing this.

    Anyway, I will update FontAwesome to v5, it turns out that it’s not smooth, they made some serious changes from v4 to 5.
    Tomorrow I’ll release the new version with some new features. When you update, be sure to clear the cache and let me know if there’s anything wrong.

    Thanks : )

    Your 1.6 update solved this, and I had to remove that CSS fixer snippet. Thank you so much for that! If I haven’t left a review yet I will be sure to do that.
