Hi

Im trying to get font awesome icons in my navigation, (for example a home icon next to home test)

i have signed up and got the piece of code that goes in the header, i have then tried various ways and watched various youtube videos on how to do it but still no icons appear in my navigation or on any page.

Im using the wells template

can anyone help me with what im doing wrong please

Did you use correct page url?

Above code, I declared FontAwesome 4. If you want to use FontAwesome latest version (5), you need to edit FA5 in first url.

and use different code for 

div#topNav [href="/bio"]:before
