Support » Plugin: Better Font Awesome » Remote CSS Error

  • Resolved contactovisual


    Hi there,

    Running your latest version 1.0.6 of your (great by the way) plugin, and I am getting the following error message on my dashboard:

    Better Font Awesome
    Remote CSS Error
    The attempt to fetch the remote Font Awesome stylesheet failed with the following error: 404: Not Found (URL: (URL: //
    The embedded fallback Font Awesome will be used instead (version: 4.2.0).
    Don’t worry! Better Font Awesome will still render using the included fallback version: 4.2.0
    This may be the result of a temporary server or connectivity issue which will resolve shortly. However if the problem persists please file a support ticket on the plugin forum, citing the errors listed above.

    Though I am not getting the API error tried to increase the timeout as recommended on
    but did not work for me

    and now I am lost…could you assist please?? THANKS 😀

    Hi there,

    Something funky is going on with your install. If you look at your URL in the error message, you can see that normally where a version of Font Awesome would be output (e.g. 4.2.0) , your URL simply has the string “a” (after “fontawesome” and before “css”). This indicates to me that somehow your settings are messed up, and or you need to reset them. Can you try simply resetting your version of Font Awesome in the BFA admin panel? Do you have any custom code that would be altering the version?


    Hi Mickey,

    Thanks for the swift response! Went to the BFA admin panel, swapped the version to 4.2.0 and works like a charm. I do have a Fontawesome menu preinstalled into my theme (the-7-theme) Thanks for your assistance – Great support !
