Step 1. Select an icon and find the icon code from here:

http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icons/

Step 2. Add a Link to your navigation and make the Link Title the icon code.

As an EXAMPLE, paste in

<i class="fa-facebook"></i>

as your Link Title for that Facebook icon.

Then, add your social profile URL to the 'External' tab of the link settings.

Step 3. Add this exact code to your site's Home menu > Settings > Advanced > Code Injection > Header and Footer fields.

HEADER:


<!----Font.awesome--->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.3.0/css/font-awesome.min.css">


FOOTER:


<link rel="stylesheet" href="//maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.3.0/css/font-awesome.min.css">


Step 4. Your new social icon should appear via the link in your site's navigation menu.

To Make Larger Icons

To increase icon sizes relative to their container, use the fa-lg (33% increase), fa-2x, fa-3x, fa-4x, or fa-5x classes. (You will make this change in the Link Title)

fa-lg fa-2x fa-3x fa-4x fa-5x

If your icons are getting chopped off on top and bottom, make sure you have sufficient line-height.

Hi guys,

I was having problems with this, but then found that replacing the header code (found here https://fontawesome.com/get-started) works well:

<script defer src="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.0.10/js/all.js" integrity="sha384-slN8GvtUJGnv6ca26v8EzVaR9DC58QEwsIk9q1QXdCU8Yu8ck/tL/5szYlBbqmS+" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

You will also need to remove the footer code mentioned above.

Hi,

For some reason this isn't working for me. I get a generic scrambled unknown icon in place of the social icons. I have used your exact HTML and header/footer code injections and this is what I see. Help?

TIA!
