    I would like to use Font Awesome Pro instead of the free version. What is the best way to do this?

    • Basti


      Hello Trishah,

      you can simply use CDN in your child-theme for Pro version fontawesome.com/v5.15/how-to-use/customizing-wordpress/snippets/setup-cdn-webfont



    Thank you for this plugin. It saved me today. About the only thing that didn’t work was trying to do a font awesome icon `fa-envelope`. The style is there, but the glyph doesn’t show.



    is it a limited set shipped?



      My previous comment is being moderated. I typed in a markdown style comment for HTML code and it didn’t get through, but stranger than that, a random string that I didn’t type “is it a limited set shipped?” got in.

      The code I tried to put was an icon element with `class=”fab fa-envelope”`

        Hi Trevor,

        markdowns doesn’t work here in comments. Fontawesome free is installed here. fab fa-envelope doesn’t exist, you have to use fas fa-envelope or far fa-envelope. https://fontawesome.com/v5.15/icons/envelope?style=solid

        <i class="fas fa-envelope"></i> <i class="far fa-envelope"></i>
