Font Awesome: Stacked Icons

Recommended Posts


In the documentation for Font Awesome there's a section with what's called Stacked Icons - two icons stacked on top of each other. 


It states that the style is new in Font Awesome 3.2. Comparing the new icons from 3.2 with the icons in the PageLines documentation, it seems to be the 3.2 version that's used in DMS.

<span class="icon-stack">
  <i class="icon-check-empty icon-stack-base"></i>
  <i class="icon-twitter"></i>

Pasting the above code (which is stacked on the Font Awesome site) just displays the two icons on their own lines. Is DMS not supporting stacked icons or am I doing something wrong?


It also seems that Prepended & Appended Form Inputs isn't working

  <div class="input-prepend">
    <span class="add-on"><i class="icon-envelope"></i></span>
    <input class="span2" type="text" placeholder="Email address">
  <div class="input-prepend">
    <span class="add-on"><i class="icon-key"></i></span>
    <input class="span2" type="password" placeholder="Password">

I'd also like to know if it's possible to size the icons more than just four times (using icon-4x) - i've tried icon-5x, but nothing happens. Since Font Awesome scales with the text size would a solution be to add a class in the CSS that specifies a specific textsize?

Thanks for the quick reply, Danny. There's no milestone added on the issue - any guesstimate on when it will be implemented?


What about sizes (bottom of the post above)?

I wouldn't like to take a guess, we use a customized version of Font Awesome so I can't give any ETA unfortunately.


However, you could just add the CSS used for stacked icons to your custom code, you can get it from inspecting the stacked icons from the Font Awesome example page.

      Hi everyone, since Instagram had allowed to publish in different ratio formats (instead of only square ratio) the grams stripe has different heights. Can you tell me if i can fix it easily with some CSS?

      Hi guys!
      I have noticed that my primary sidebar becomes intermittently invisible when browsing through various blog articles on michaelkummer.com/blog.
      https://www.dropbox.com/s/z646sgoa3mfjl1j/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.46.jpg?dl=0 and https://www.dropbox.com/s/vdledzzgginvwgv/Screenshot 2018-07-12 15.57.57.jpg?dl=0
      Upon refresh, the sidebar appears. I have been using the following CSS code to hide the sidebar on mobile without any issues. 
      @media only screen and (max-width: 993px) {
      /* hide sidebars */
           .plsb {
              display: none !important;
      I tried to add the following CSS to force the sidebar to show on screens that are wider than 994 pixels but to no avail. Any clue what could be causing this issue?

      Hi guys!
      I am using the LESS/CSS Pagelines extension and tried to add the following code to make use of FontAwesome:
      a.c2a:before {
          content: "\f07a\00a0";
          font-family: "Font Awesome 5 Pro";
          Font-weight: 900;
          font-style: normal;
          font-weight: normal;
          text-decoration: inherit;
          padding-left: 4px;
      The issue is that as soon as I have the CSS via the Custom Styling text box, Pagelines (or the extension) strips out the backslashes (\). As a result, I had to abandon the CSS/LESS extension and instead add all my CSS code to a separate .css file.
      Is there a fix or workaround for this?

      Hello, I am having a problem similar to that experienced by Michael Kummer here. We have pages that show this automatic scrolling issue (examples here and here) and it is sufficiently annoying that we have seen customers bounce while trying to convert. Strangely, it only happens at specific resolutions, so it can be difficult to reproduce. In general we can only consistently reproduce it on a 4k resolution with a browser width between 1517 and 1536px. 
      Thanks to Michael Kummer's help we were able to set the overflow-anchor property to none in the entire body, which fixed the issue as far as we can tell, but also obviously disabled scroll anchoring for the whole site. I tried applying it to the specific element that looked like it was being reloaded, which was the PL Meganav extension, but that was unsuccessful. 
      Can anyone help us figure out which element or ID we can apply this property to, so that we can fix the scrolling issue but not disable scroll anchoring for the entire site?
      Thank you -

      Just did a clean install of Platform 5 at myedadvisor.com and the icons in Pagelines are not displaying (screenshot attached).
