Font Awesome 4 Menus
[resolved] Please remove space before menu-item span (4 posts)

    I love your plugin. Great idea. Easy to use!

    I think you should remove a 'space' from your plugin though. I understand that this space allows for a nice space between the icon and the text, but I'm a designer and I'd like to control this space with css instead of space characters...

    It's on line 83, character 115:

    $newtext = '<i class="'.implode( ' ', $fontawesome_classes ).'"></i><span class="fontawesome-text"> '.$text.'</span>';

    Understandable, but then we need a solution so that the text doesn't smash up to the icon for users who aren't taking fine grain control of their CSS. We could add another span just with a space in it (which could then be hidden with CSS), but now we have another tag and conceivably some bloat.

    Any suggestions?

    How about:

    .fontawesome-text {
        padding-left: 10px;

    We just pushed an update to Font Awesome 4 Menus adding an administrative screen that allows you to remove the space for finer control over your menus. Thanks for the suggestion!
