Question FontAwesome issue on Gantry 5 templates

4 years 4 weeks ago - 4 years 4 weeks ago #1 by hennysmafter
Dear Devs & Users,

During the setup of categories I quickly found out that font awesome icons where not displayed. So I checked my setup first:

Template Settings > Features:
Topic Icons = Fontawesome
Load ext. CDN Fontawesome = No (as Gantry 5 has it already included)

So I investigated further and found out that the icons where build up like this:
<i class="fa fa-folder icon-big" alt="New Posts"></i>

This lead me too the CSS file icomoon.css in this file there is this piece of code:
[class^="icon-"]:before, [class*=" icon-"]:before {
    font-family: 'IcoMoon';
    font-style: normal;
    speak: none;

The above code prevents the FontAwesome icon to be visible as the font-family is in conflict.

A very simple solution is to add the below code to your custom.scss file in the Gantry 5 Template.
[class^="fa-"]:before, [class*=" fa-"]:before {
    font-family: 'FontAwesome';
