Icon Element

28/08/2020

In Avada 6.2, the Font Awesome Icon Element was renamed to the Icon Element. This is because you can now also add custom icon sets to Avada, which this element can then access. For more details on that, please see How To Upload And Use Custom Icons in Avada.

But regardless of the name change, this element is still a great way to add any of the 1,598 Free Font Awesome Icons to your content, as well as any custom fonts you want to upload. And if that’s not enough for you, there is also Font Awesome Pro Integration in Avada, giving you access to 7,000+ Font Awesome Icons through the Avada Builder.

A full set of styling options in this Element allow you to select icon size, weight, color, background, rotation, spinning and more. And every one is 100% full vector, so they look incredibly sharp and are retina-ready! Read below for an overview of the specific features of this awesome Element.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Font Awesome Pro requires an annual subscription, please check their site for detailed information & pricing.

How To Use The Icon Element

The Icon Element allows you to place icons anywhere on your site.

Step 1. Ensure Avada Builder, or Avada Live is active.

Step 2. Create, or choose the Column you wish to add the Element into. Click on Add New Element.

Step 3. Choose Icon from the Elements List.

Step 4. There are three tabs in the Icon Element. The first one, General, is where you choose your font, and make some basic settings to do with size, functionality and alignment. The Icon picker was also updated with Avada 6.2 to show any installed icon sets, both Font Awesome Icon sets and Custom Icon sets. The Design tab is where you configure your selected icon’s appearance with margin, circle, color, background and border options. The Extras tab offers animation options that allow you to determine how the icon interacts with the loading of the page.

Step 5. Once you have completed styling your Icon, click Save.

Read below for a detailed description of all element options.
