Support » Plugin: Font Awesome » Plugin needs updating

  • Font Awesome is awesome because it gets updated all the time with new and relevant icons. This plugin only lists the old icons 🙁

    An easy workaround is to add the single line of code (linking to the latest Font Awesome CSS file as on to your theme’s header.php file (under Appearance, Editor, header.php)

  • Thanks for your comment here. What line of code from should I be adding?

    Have to disagree with what you’ve said, this plugin also provides the shortcodes which, without this you would have to either type the HTML or write the shortcodes in PHP first to use. Provided this plugin remains updated with the latest version of the icon set, one alternative would be to use the code and hard code it into your theme.

    OK, here’s what I meant:

    Download the plugin and add the following code:

    <i class="icon-pencil"></i>

    It should show a pencil. This is all good, but it is one of the first (older) fonts they added. Now try to add this:

    <i class="icon-wheelchair"></i>

    It doesn’t show anything.

    Font Awesome continuously adds more icons, but the plugin doesn’t stay up to date with the latest version.

    What you should do to enable all icons on your WordPress site:

    1. Go to Appearance > Editor > header.php
    2. Add the line: <link href="//" rel="stylesheet">
    3. Add any icons (as from their latest cheat sheet)

    Hope this helped? Cheers!
