Hello Leo and all –
You all have been incredibly helpful so far – thanks! I am trying to add simple icons to my footer (phone, email, etc) to jazz up the contact section. I have read the forum articles on adding fontawesome icons, but it does not work. The spot where they are supposed to be is blankety blank. I am using Beaver Builder as well. When I try to insert a fontawesome into a page…it is there for a moment, and then disappears when you publish. I had “Custom Sidebars” plugin activated, but I tried deactivating it and no change.
Am I meant to be enqueing font-awesome somewhere, or turning something on?
On the site, you can look in the right hand footer. Between the Association title and the email, there is a blank spot where this code lives: <i class=”fa fa-phone”></i>
<i class=”fa fa-envelope-o”></i>
And as you see, the spot is blank. Thanks in advance! (Alternatively, if there is a simple plugin you like to jazz up footers – I can just do that!)

The code I referenced seemed to be bogging down the site, so it is deleted for now. But if you go to the site, just imagine a blank space in the contact widget. Thanks! LauraApril 17, 2018 at 9:39 am #552907LeoStaffCustomer Support
Can you make sure the load essential CSS option is not checked?
Let me know.April 17, 2018 at 9:49 am #552924Laura
Of course it was. 🙂 Thanks again, Leo. All fixed now. LauraApril 17, 2018 at 10:04 am #552934Laura
Whoops – i marked this as closed, but now it seems the site is quite slow. I think I will use four icons total for the life of the site. Do you think it would be faster to just upload those four somehow? or is there a list of “essential font awesome icons?” I found a reference to them in the forum, but not the actual list. I will look into other reasons the site is loading slowly as well. Thanks again.April 17, 2018 at 12:58 pm #553094LeoStaffCustomer SupportApril 24, 2018 at 8:35 am #559174Laura
Thanks again. I think I marked this as resolved. but if I didn’t, it is resolved. LauraApril 24, 2018 at 8:53 am #559199
