Works Okay, but breaks some themes.

This plugin will break the Arcade Basic theme.

Simple & Easy to Use

Very quick and simple alternative to custom coding. Also loads Font Awesome if you don't use it already in your site so that you can use icons elsewhere and not just menus.

so far so good! made circles around my icons too
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.
