    Hello,

    I would like to update the font icons because I would like to use the font (fa-server) and it dont work on theme.

    I download the package from http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/ and update the files from folder wp-content/themes/DynamiX/stylesheets/font-icons but dont work.

    Could you help me how to update the font icons?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    That should be all you need to do – it maybe cached on your browser. If you post a link to your site, I’ll be able to check that it’s updated for you.

    Dear Andy~

    I’m also having trouble with this issue. I’m trying to use a few of the new icons from Font Awesome here: http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icon/ship/ on my Client’s Landing Page, but every time I use “fa-ship” inside the Visual Bakery Editor, the icon doesn’t appear on the front of the site here: http://hookedadventures.com/beta/.

    I’m using a Child Theme, so I updated my folders to include the new Font Awesome 4.3 here: /beta/wp-content/themes/DynamiX-Child/stylesheets/font-icons/css. I also overwrote the css in the Parent Theme here: /beta/wp-content/themes/DynamiX/stylesheets/font-icons/css. But I did notice when using Firebug to debug the css, I saw that the css was located here: wp-content/plugins/js_composer/assets/lib/font-awesome/css/font-awesome.min.css?ver=4.4.2 so I updated the css inside the js_composer also.

    It’s still not reflecting the changes. I’ve tried other browsers, and cleared my cache as well. Can you please advise me on what to do next? Thanks a lot.

    Warmly,
    Zacchaeus

    Hi Zacchaeus,

    The latest version of the theme has the latest version of FontAwesome, have you updated it?

    Dear Andy~

    Yes, I just finished my update, but the Theme is still loading Font Awesome 4.2. You can check my Landing Page here: http://hookedadventures.com/beta. Do you want log in access to the site?

    Hi Z,

    I’m not sure why they’re not showing but you’re definitely using 4.3.0 : http://hookedadventures.com/beta/wp-content/plugins/js_composer/assets/lib/font-awesome/css/font-awesome.min.css

    I upgraded to 4.2.3 and update the libs.

    I’m trying to use the fa-server (http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icon/server/)

    Check my website http://www.faculdadeti.com.br/wordpress
    Thanks

    Dear All~

    I found out why the Visual Composer (VC) from WPBakery isn’t working with the new updates to the Theme; it’s because the zipped versions of the new plugins needed to be updated manually via FTP. The styling is coming from VC, not the native Theme updates.

    It’s resolved now: and here’s the result: http://hookedadventures.com/beta/ (The fa-ship is the new 4.3 icon.) Thanks everyone and good luck.

    Warmly,
    Zacchaeus
