Although this theme uses the popular Font Awesome icon set, you can use a plugin for more flexibility. This theme lets you disable Font Awesome that is already included if you want to use the plugin method. If you decide to use a plugin, I recommend Better Font Awesome.
Using the Plugin Method
If you already have font awesome plugin installed, you can skip this step unless you decide to change to Better Font Awesome.
- Go to Plugins >> Add New
- Search for Better Font Awesome and then you should see this:
- Click Install and activate it
Disable the Theme’s Built-in Font Awesome
- Go to Appearance >> Customize >> Site Options
- Look for the “Load Font Awesome” setting and uncheck the box.
- Click “Save & Publish“
