Update or Upgrade Fontawesome correctly to latest version

Featured Lock Resolved
How do I correctly update or upgrade to the latest Fontawesome version? Which file/s to edit and where?

Can I just replace them or Joomshaper did its own custom settings that I must also preserve?

I need some new icons in the latest version which is not present in the current version installed with Helix II.

Thanks.

Hi Vins,
You can't update font awesome in Helix II, currently we are giving support in 'font awesome 3.2.1' with Helix II, you will get latest font awesome version with our next Helix version.

- Thanks for stay with us

Thank you. Is there a way I could add a few new icons found in the new release? Or i'm just stuck with what is packaged with Helix II?

Hi Vins,
ok have another solution, you can integrate new font awesome with your template, then you can use 2 versions together.

How can I do this please? What folder and file to add and where? Which files to edit? Will the customized two versions get lost when there is an upgrade of the framework?

By the way, J!3.3 is coming up. I hope you will also upgrade the Helix II framework. Thank you very much.

Hi,
Please follow url: http://fontawesome.io/get-started/

or
1. download font-awesome latest version,
2. keep css and fonts folder.
3. past the css file in 'template/css' folder, and fonts have to past in fonts folder(if fonts folder doesnt exist create a fonts folder in template root).
4. go to css/template.css in the top import font-awesome css file like: @import url('font-awesome.css');

i hope after this you will get latest font-awesome, Our next Helix version is coming soon, in our next helix version we integrated latest font-awesome version.

- Thanks
