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.

Please search our forums, before posting!

      Shouldn't the image PL5 component be using the srcset/picture css directives to pick the correct size for an image? or it does already and I don't know how to use it? Thank you for any advice or enlightenment.

      I used the following code in a TextBox:  <a href="http://bookpage.html">BOOK NOW</a> <i class="fa fa-cart-arrow-down fa-lg"></i>
      But the fa icons are not showing up next to the BOOK NOW text in the fixed top right corner. See website: http://campmoonrise.nl/book-now/
      See code screenshot....

      Good Evening/Afternoon or Morning, 
      I am running into a problem with CSS styling not applying inside of most browsers (Safari, Firefox) when I am logged in to wordpress, and all browsers that I have tested when I am logged off and the site has been made public (Chrome, Firefox and Safari).
      As a result, I have managed to identify the probable cause. It looks as though these browsers are refusing to render my sites compiled CSS file due to it being a HTTP URL rather than HTTPS.
      I have attempted to change this URL to HTTPS in my browser, however it brings back an ERROR: File not found page - https://www.shortfilmblog.com/wp-content/uploads/pagelines/compiled-css-core-1505847507.css
      What would you suggest in this regard? Would this be resolvable from your end?
      Happy to provide any further details required.

      I really tryed to highlight the active/used link in the nav but I cant figure it out.
