Support » Plugin: Font Awesome » Not an intuitive plug-in

  • The plug-in is not intuitive to use nor is there a step by step explanation on how to install and use in WordPress. If an reasonably intelligent person can’t get it to work, then it’s no good!

  • I’m not entirely sure where you are coming from with this…maybe it was different 7 months ago, than it is now…but it’s one of the most simple plugins that I have ever seen for this type of thing.

    You install it.
    You reference the FontAwesome Cheat Sheet.
    (they provide a link to the cheatsheet pdf in the description)
    You pick an icon from that sheet.
    Copy and paste that name into the name=”” field in the shortcode.

    So for example:
    [icon name="icon-camera"][/icon]

    Would create a camera icon.


    You can also add custom CSS to these icons, by including a class within the name field…
    So for example, I wanted a circle with an icon in the center.

    [icon name="icon-trophy circle-it"][/icon]

    That creates a trophy icon with the extra class “circle-it” so that I can apply any css that I want to that icon.

    I do not understand how much more intuitive you need for font-icon shortcodes.

    It’s actually really simple, and exactly what I was looking for to incorporate into a site-build that I am doing, and will probably end up using it in a theme that I am building later.

    reasonably intelligent?
