    GeneratePress theme should be ready for using Font Awesome, but when I insert fx <i class="fa fa-camera-retro"></i> it is stripped off when I save.
    I’m using Advanced TinyMCE editor.

    Hi there,

    This is a WP editor/Advanced TinyMCE editor issue.

    One solution is to place an HTML comment inside the icon:

    <i class="fa fa-camera-retro"><!-- icon --></i>

    Hi Tom

    Thanks. It works. Nice little feature.

    I kept searching and find also some other ways to deal with this problem. You can install the Advanced TinyMCE Config plugin. There you can set the option “extended_valid_elements” to “i[*]” (you add the i-tag to other “valid_elements”). That way the i-tag wont be stripped out.

    Alternatively, in your functions.php you can add the following code:

    function override_mce_options($initArray) {
       $opts = 'i[*]';
    /*   $initArray['valid_elements'] = $opts; */ /*only if you want to change all valid_elemnts */
       $initArray['extended_valid_elements'] = $opts;
       return $initArray;
       add_filter('tiny_mce_before_init', 'override_mce_options');

    Btw, thank you for a very adaptive and well functioning theme, and your add-ons are great.
