How to add an icon code from Font Awesome




  • Search the site for an icon and click into the one you would like to add.
  • Copy the part of the icon code that is within the “quotation marks” near the top left of the page.



NOTE: Font Awesome 5 requires you to specify the icon style within the code as well.

 

The icon styles are as follows:

  • Solid (fas): Icons are filled in.
  • Regular (far): Icons have bold outlines and are not filled in.
  • Light (fal): Icons have thin outlines and are not filled in.
  • Brands (fab): Icons for specific brand names.

 

Two Line OfieNOTE: If the icon code is not entered in correctly, you will receive an error message upon saving which reads: The value in this field is invalid.


  • Paste this code into the “Icon Code” field back in KaiNexus.
  • Select your desired color for the icon from the dropdown.
  • Select Save.
