Using Font Awesome icons

The free version of Moderne uses Font Awesome icons for a variety of elements, such as the social menus, search field with the magnifying glass, etc.

The premium version of Moderne offers the choice of using Font Awesome v4 or Font Awesome v5 (a newer version). But for this one, we’ve implemented version 4 and also gave you the option to disable it if you are using a plugin that already loads this one.

The idea is to disable it if you are using a plugin because you would end up with double the source code and possibly icon conflicts. Otherwise, you can leave it enabled for this theme.

  1. Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Theme Options
  2. Look for the “Use Font Awesome Icons” setting and to disable it, uncheck the box next to it, otherwise keep it checked to use Font Awesome v4

  3. Click “Save & Publish” at the top of the column
