By , for WP 3.9.1

I wanted to put a colored circle around my menu social media icons so did this CSS ( i used diff colors for each icon)

.fa-instagram {
border-radius: 75%;
font-size: 20px;
background: #0076ba;
color: #FFFFFF;
padding: 0.5em 0.4em;


my menu item css class is "fa-instagram fa-lg" and i also used the
.fontawesome-text {display: none;}
suggested at it looks nice!

Down-rating due to lack of user-friendliness.

Without learning CSS first, the plug-in is difficult to use, as the makers assume that everybody has their skill-level.

Geek-speak example:

In Font Awesome 4 Menus, we have added the ability to add multiple Font Awesome classes for multiple effects (eg, fa-home fa-fw fa-2x will add a fixed-width home icon at two times the normal size).

IMHO the idea behind WordPress was to enable people to publish without coding-skills.

simple ideas are often best ideas

Great Looking and Functional
By , for WP 4.0

Great plugin for adding font awesome icons to your wordpress menus. Some would say you could skip the plugin and just add code to your functions.php. But, this plugin is just to functional to skip, and doesn't seem to reduce site load speed.

I rarely search for or use free plugins anymore, but I did a quick search and this one came up. I gotta thank Chris Lema blog for bringing this plugin to my attention. I did a Google search for how to add icons to wp menus, and Chris' blog was the 1st search result I saw.

Works great!

Using HTML "class" and "id" is always a good practice and this plugin inherits all Font Awesome intelligent tactic.
Maybe could be "awesome" to have a settings panel for icon font positions and destinations:

- a "before/after" text option when used in menus for people no css coders
- a "destination field" where you could decide in which element of pages and posts insert the icon and not only in menus, or a short code to paste wherever you want, or better a short code generator
- a not Font Awesome only library

Actually we need 2 to 3 plugins to do that job and you know... "conflicts" is the bad word.
I know there are several plugins doing a TinyMCE integration also and I'm forced to use them. But NEW NINE is reliable and the product is very good, so could be very amazing if all of those plugins converge in just ONE absolute icon font spread engine developed by NEW NINE.

Amazing job.
Wonderful plugin.
