Updating Font Awesome Library

Featured Lock Resolved Task
Hi there,
I would like to add the newest version of Font Awesome to my Corporex template.
I am aware that the Corporex template uses Font Awesome in many sections, so I want to make sure I update all the necessary areas.
Thanks,
Sarah

Hi,
For adding latest font-awesome follow this steps:
> Upload your fonts in root font folder (if not exist create folder).
> Paste Font awesome CSS in CSS folder make sure fonts path in font-awesome css file.
> insert this codes in 'templates\yourtemplate\index.php' file
< ?php $helix->addCSS('override.css'); ? >
.

thats it.

- Thanks

you can add it as external CSS but in our helix-3 has latest font-awesome and bootstrap version.

Hi Rifat,
I am using the Corporex template, so I don't believe this has the latest version - I am trying to use some of the icons that are in the newest version of Font Awesome 4.3

Can you please assist me in installing the newer version of FontAwesome into Corporex?

Thanks,
Sarah

Hi Rifat,
Thanks for your reply!
Can I just confirm what I need to do - with some questions as well...

1. Create "Fonts" folder in public_html (root) directory
2. Upload Font Awesome 4.3 package (css + fonts + less + scss) to "public_html > Fonts"
3. Upload the Font Awesome CSS + min.css files to "templates > shaper_corporex"
How do I check the Font Awesome css files for a fonts path?
4. Insert the code below to the bottom of the "index.php" file in "templates > shaper_corporex"
< ?php $helix->addCSS('override.css'); ? >


I just want to make sure I do this all correctly the first time as I cannot afford to break my site now that it's design is almost complete.

Thanks,
Sarah

Rifat,

I want to do the same thing (need to add snapchat icon) only I'm confused about step three:

3. Paste Font awesome CSS in CSS folder make sure fonts path in font-awesome css file

What does should "fonts path in font-awesome css file" look like? I think I can do the rest. Not sure about this step.

Thanks,
Sam
