You may well of noticed that I might have a slight obsession/love with font awesome, at any given opportunity to use font awesome on this blog I have. It is a simple and effective way to use icons and removes the risk of pixelated ones. Therefore today I am dedicating an entire post to the lovely font awesome.


Let’s get started!



To be able to use font awesome within your blog you need to add  this link within the header tag in your the header.php file:



NB- You can also get this link from the font awesome website here.


Next to be able to able to add the icons to your site simply search the range of icons here:





Click on your chosen icon and a screen like this will appear:

From this screen copy and paste this part of the code and add it to whereabout on the website in the html you want it to show up:


Once placed in the html your icon will appear like so:

You can style your font awesome the same way you would normally style font.
I would recommend using font awesome for your social media icons and adding arrows to sections if needed (scroll over the social media buttons on the left).
