While working on an older GPP site, I had noticed that a couple post meta icons had disappeared from .posted-on and .author ( “\f073” and “\f007” ).
A Facebook user suggested that I install a Fontawesome plugin since the latest GPP doesn’t include Fontawesome. So I did that. I then also replaced ‘GeneratePress’ with ‘Font Awesome 5 Free’ as the font-family for all of the meta icon pseudo classes. The \f073 and \f007 icons then returned.
But then the icons for Tags (.tags-links “\f02c”), and Previous (.prev “\f104”) and Next (.next “\f105”) disappeared! These seem to still rely on the GeneratePress font-family but I had switched to Font Awesome 5 Free as described above, so I’m not sure how to get them to display, and I can’t easily tell which icon requires one font-family or the other.
A link to a post with the meta at the bottom is attached.
