    This isn’t something I’ve built into the plugin as of yet.

    I still think it is a good idea so it could still find its way into a future release, but as of right now I don’t have a lot of free time to add new features to this plugin.

    Just wanted to add that we did this using a combination of the main plugin, the plugin by Alex Goller(@alpipego) and instead of using the CDN for the URL, we placed our local URL in, we also changed /advanced-custom-fields-font-awesome/assets/inc/ and edited the class-ACFFA-Loader-5.php to remove all external URLS and now there are no calls to any other URL at all.
    We have declared FA5 Pro in our functions for front and back to only use the local files, and with the combination of all this, its working perfectly.

    @killerbeez Nice job! Could you share the code?

    I’ve managed to enable the pro and don’t setup the CDN by including the fontawesome.css in my admin panel through functions.php. But this issnt a great solution πŸ™ It gives an 403 at the backend “GET”.

    I think I will take an extra hour this weekend to “rebuild” this plugin in my wishes πŸ™‚

    @tatof if you had an email we could sling it across.
    we are not using the fontawesome pro URL, so we changed that that to point to the local fontawesome CSS in the extra plugin from Alex Goller.

    add_action(‘admin_head’, function () {
    echo ‘<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”/wp-content/fontawesome/css/all.css”>’;

    Anyhow im using the same technique πŸ™‚
    Only I didn’t remove the original CND urls in the plugin.
