    Hello, SO originally I had 2 issues with fontawesome.
    The first one was that all the icons were not showing even with the (only load essential) option not checked.
    I found out that while adding the font in the text tab, I had to remove the “s” from “fas”. That made them show.
    The second issue you can see on this page: the (Contact Us page on our site listed below).
    You can see that there are 3 Fontawesome icons are showing OK. even though the entire page used the same code. The (business hours) part does not show the clock icon. (<i class=”fa fa-clock” style=”color: #c83ac0; font-size: 25px; padding-right: 0px;”></i>).
    I am not sure why it show all the other icons but not this one. I even tried to replace it with other icons (like envelope) which shows on the same page, but nothing comes up.
    Any help to make this one icon show will be much appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    We are still in the process of upgrading to FA5 which is why you need to use the fa prefix instead of fas for now.

    For the second problem, just to double check that load essential icons are not checked here?

    OK, any eta on the implementation of fontawesome?
    And yes, for the second one, the (load essential icons only) is un-checked.
    As I mentioned, Only this line is not taking any icons, I tried multiple icons in place of the clock one, all with invisible results, mean while on other lines and other paragraphs on the same exact page, they all show with no issues.

    GP hasn’t updated to Font Awesome 5 yet, so fa-clock isn’t a thing. You can find the correct class here: https://fontawesome.com/v4.7.0/icons/

    ok, fa fa-clock-o worked. thank you.
    When you update to FA 5, will we have to change all of our icons?
