Based on the nature of your business, you would like to have social profiles. This is very common and we have come across it many times. The existing solution involves adding extra social icons by writing code in the child theme. Our solution removes that technical skill and it’s free!

I already have font awesome loaded. What should I do to avoid loading it twice?

You would need to dequeue the stylesheets using wp_dequeue_style.

We recommend that you keep the latest version of font awesome. To dequeue the font awesome files used in this plugin, dequeue the divi-fa and divi-fa-brands handle in your child theme.


Which version of Font Awesome is used?

We use version 5.12.0

Where do I set the plugin to use locally hosted fontawesome

Saves me tones of time. Works exactly as it says. I also like that you can extend it for other icons if you need too and get support for anything on Fontawesome.

It works with header, but not for footer. Is there a way, in near future, to do this?
