Over 2481 icons with WordPress and font awesome use – example Divi Theme
Icons are a really interesting story and can subtly enhance the design of a website. Some themes, like Divi, already come with icon fonts, but most of them can only be used with certain modules. With Fontawesome you can place icons almost everywhere and the choice is huge. By the way, the use is free, there is also a premium service with a larger selection, but I haven’t needed it yet.
If you want to see what it looks like live, you can visit the CoinUpdate website. Here is a screenshot of the integrated icons:
With WordPress, Fontawesome can actually be integrated very easily. Depending on the theme, the procedure is different and unfortunately I can’t go into each of them individually due to the large number of themes.
