Support » Theme: OnePress » Footer Socials Font Awesome Stopped Working

  • If you look at any page of my site, you will see in the light grey area, widget 4, a main articles menu that is using Font Awesome. To get these icons to work, I had to “add a Font Awesome” project. FA have changed the way they let people use their icons for free. You need to register on their site, create a project, add the free icons you want to use, to that project and embed code on your site html header tag. The moment I did this, the fontawesome powered icons supplied as part of your theme in the Customiser > Footer Socials > Icon, stopped working. Popular icons like the social media idons just wont work. However, if you select the music note, this still does. (Perhaps FA have not yet “protected” the un-popular or less commonly used icons). Either way, your theme will need an update to enable this tool (which we are paying for) to work with Projects.
    I could remove the FA project code from the <header> tag, but this would mean I then can’t use their icons anywhere else on my site. I am damned if I do, and damned if I don’t!
