Fontawesome in Cassiopeia

Post by MAD King » Mon Jul 04, 2022 8:00 pm

Hello (again),

In an article by Astrid Günther, she wrote that the free Fontawesome icons are already implemented in Joomla 4 with Cassiopeia, but when I add the Fontawesome code to it, I only get a square and not an icon.

Code: Select all

<i class="fa-brands fa-facebook"></i>
Anyone knows about that?

J4 is currently using FontAwesome 5, not 6. So the correct class for now is "fab fa-facebook".

Thank you.

Did not expect that Joomla 4 is behind with a lot. I assumed it is already using v6.
