    How to Add Font Awesome Icons in Astra?

    Astra does not come with Font Awesome Icons but uses a custom font icon. The library we have used is lightweight and contains only the necessary icons required for the theme.

    But Font Awesome Icons can be easily added with the external plugin. Below are the steps to add Font Awesome Icons to Astra:

    Step 1: Choose a plugin from WordPress repository that allows loading a Font Awesome library to site. For Example – Better Font Awesome.
    Step 2: Install the plugin on the site.
    Step 3: You can now use shortcode for font awesome icons anywhere on site including header, footer, sidebar, etc.
    Step 4: For example – [icon name=user] will display the user icon from Font Awesome. [icon name=user class=”fa-2x”] will display bigger icon. It depends on the plugin methods. You can enter the shortcode in the Text/HTML field on site.

    That’s it!
