    Sorry had to remove the plugin temporarily, problem exists though, most buttons are only fab not fa now, but the facebook-f needs sorting.

    Sorry for the late reply.
    The issue is because you are using fontawesome 5.0 which supports class fab
    WP Socializer used fontawesome 4.x which uses fa
    Could you please check if you have made any option to stop using it ?

    Or else, you can include the following CSS in your website to get it working.

    In the next release I’ll handle this situation.

    Hi Vaakash

    Thank you for your reply, yes we had to convert to 5.0 as we wanted some specific font awesome fonts and only 5.0 had them. Of course we then found out that Font Awesome have changed many of their i codes to display the fonts.

    We will definitely want to continue using your plugin, it is by far the best one out there in my opinion and we have tried a few!

    I will await your update, many thanks
