We are developing a website with Elementor, and we see that the fontawesome icons do not appear.
This problem is solved when we deactivate GP.
How can we solve the problem?GeneratePress 2.1.2GP Premium 1.6.2June 13, 2018 at 5:15 am #598938DavidStaffCustomer Support
the missing FA icons (in the Elementor Social Share widgets) have inherited the Font Awesome 5.0 free as their Font Family. Which Elementor doesn’t support. So it looks like a conflict between FA4 and FA5 being installed together. Can you try disabling whatever plugin is adding FA5 support please.
Let me knowJune 13, 2018 at 7:44 am #599059Arturo Garcia
When I deactivate Elementor, the Fontawesome icons appear in the footer.
but when I have active GP and Elementor, the Fontawesome icons in Elementor do not work for me, and this is a problem…
I need both plugins active… I have developed many websites with these two plugins together and I have never had problems :/June 13, 2018 at 9:05 am #599200TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Just to expand on what David said:
You can see here that the
font-familyfor the icon is
Font Awesome 5 Free: https://www.screencast.com/t/QwRmAi3X3I
However, the site itself is loading Font Awesome 4.7: https://www.screencast.com/t/nr6CBch8qUM4
It looks like Font Awesome 5 is also being loaded. Maybe through a function or inside the
wp_headhook? I don’t think Elementor is compatible with FA5, so that all.css file will need to be removed.June 13, 2018 at 9:06 am #599202DavidStaffCustomer Support
Hi Arturo, are we talking about the same site that Juan has mentioned?
It looks like you’re loading the Font Awesome 5.0 stylesheet via one of GP’s hooks. Hence deactivating it removes the hook and the FA 5 icons being used in the footer.
Whilst FA 5 is installed you cannot use Elementor FA icons as they are the old 4.7 and (in particular) the social brand icons require a difference class name.
So the current solution is to replace the Social Icons in the footer with a FA 4.7 version.June 13, 2018 at 9:08 am #599204
