How to add font icons in text block list

Recommended Posts

I am migrating a site from WP to SS.

In footer on WP site (see image) I have some icons in front of a few lines of text. This is implemented via list formating (see CSS below). 

How do I apply this to text in a text block in a Squarespace site? image.png.c592ac6a0a416857a6fd23f81b8d5a7d.png

<ul id="menu-footer-menu" class="menu menu-footer-widget">

<li id="" class="menu-item menu-item-type-post_type menu-item-object-page menu-item-211959">

(We typically respond within a few hours during normal business hours EST/EDT.)


<li id="" class="icon_chat_alt menu-item menu-item-type-custom menu-item-object-custom menu-item-211960">

First, add this to Code Injection > Header

 <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/6.1.1/css/all.min.css" integrity="sha512-KfkfwYDsLkIlwQp6LFnl8zNdLGxu9YAA1QvwINks4PhcElQSvqcyVLLD9aMhXd13uQjoXtEKNosOWaZqXgel0g==" crossorigin="anonymous" referrerpolicy="no-referrer" />

Next, add a Markdown Block in Footer, enter these syntax (See this video)

<i class="fa-sharp fa-solid fa-comment"></i> <a href="https://www.tidiochat.com/chat/3uhh5runhddyp8ibkzhuzk1srmzmi53i">Live chat</a>

<i class="fa-regular fa-envelope"></i> <a href="mailto:hello@teachingideas4u.com">Email Us</a>

<i class="fa-solid fa-lightbulb"></i> <a href="https://teachingideas4u.com/resource-request-form/">Teaching Resource Request</a>

<i class="fa-solid fa-location-dot"></i> <a href="https://teachingideas4u.com/contact">Contact Info</a>



If you need to reduce space between items, let me know, we can give the code

If you need to change size, color, add animation effect, just choose these options
