Support » Themes and Templates » [Theme: Optimizer] Menu and Social Icons Not Displaying

  • Hi, I’m new to WordPress.org but a longtime WordPress fan!

    It’s my first time building anything other than a blog on WordPress (www.northeastern.edu/numa/), and I’m struggling with what I believe is a CSS issue on my free version of the Optimizer theme. When previewing my site, the header menu icons and social media icons display, but on the live webpage they display error images of little gray-outlined boxes.

    The research I did indicated that this could be caused by some CSS overriding the icons. Can anyone point me in the direction of which of these many stylesheets is the most likely culprit? Could this issue be resolved by removing and redownloading my theme?

    Thanks so much for your help in advance!

  • Looking at the site live now and I can see the menu and social media icons just fine.

    Hi cccamuseme,

    Hmm I still cannot load the icons in Firefox (gray boxes) or IE (nothing there at all). Do you have any guess why there might be a brower or device-specific loading error?

    Thank you for looking into it for me!

    Try adding this your header.php

    <link href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.2.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet">

    Wow that worked like a miracle and improves the site by 110%! Thank you so much.

    Glad to help!

    It’s the same for the Login page. Thank you for the solution.

    add_action('login_head', 'loginHeader_addAwesomeIcons');
    function loginHeader_addAwesomeIcons()
    {
    	echo '<link href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.2.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet">';
    }
