How To Use Font Awesome Icons with Avada

Before using Font Awesome Icons in the Builder, it’s best to start in the Theme Options, as there are several options that affect how Font Awesome Icons are displayed in the Builder.

  • Font Awesome – Here, you can choose which subsets you want to load. If you have a Font Awesome Pro license, and you can connected it, you can also choose the Light subset, but otherwise you can display the Brands, Regular and the Solid subsets.

  • Font Awesome v4 Compatibility – Turn this on to enable support for Font Awesome 4 icon code format. You’ll generally only need to enable this is you have hard coded icons in your markup, for example:

    Copy to Clipboard
  • Font Awesome Pro – Turn this on to connect your Font Awesome Pro license. You will need to whitelist your domain as well.
