Fontawesome and pagelines

6 posts in this topic



Something keeps happening to fontawesome display in pagelines. This boils down to cross-domain access, caught by Firefox.


What I see on one out of three sites is that for some reason fontawesome icons are transferred in https vs http.

I'm running in network mode and have an ssl certificate for one domain only so transfer of the font fails.


There are workardounds pointing to .htaccess modifications though your ISP needs header_c complied in Apache for that to work.


Thing is: even presents these errors: check out a screenshot at



Setup: wp 3.6.1, network / domain mapping / multilanguage / wp super cache / widget logic

This has been brought to our attention before. See here for more info -


Thanks Danny,


For some this is woule be a nice workaround - provided your ISP compiles Apache with mod_headers.c - but not a solution.

Instead of using the original URL, somehow somewhere a variable is overwritten and httpd used for transfer instead of http.

Firefox is not in any way responsible for this behaviour and is basically the only browser adhering to cross-domain standards.


If this is the way it is I'll just drop fontawesome and themes making use of it, a shame to think about this but the way it is.


Thanks anyway, guess it's time for me to reconsider.

I understand that the issue does not lie with FireFox or IE and they're following the Cors standard. However, I am not entirely sure why you keep mentioning your ISP, what does your ISP have to do with CORs? I assume you mean your web host provider and not your Internet Service provider ? I will report this to our developers and see if there is anything we can do. However, you will most likely need to use the .htaccess trick provided on the link above.

Sorry Danny, you're right and I'm tired I guess. I indeed did intend my hosting provider, sorry.

:D No problem, was just confused thats all. I've created an issue in our tracker, hopefully our devs will be able to provide an alternative. If thats not the case, then you will need to use the .htaccess snippet.

      Hey Guys, i have been having some fun with PL5, on my test site, still learning and trying to master 3 sections a day, am happy the launch has been postponed its for the best lets master it as much as possible.
      But we still gat to eat with DMS for now, so my issue has been on how to reduce my pin pad size in pinspro, right now it display 3 in a row, like the default theme, but i want it to display 4 in a row, if i reduce my screen resolution to 90% it becomes 4 in a row, that is the perfect size, i cant see any css on the forum be able to reduce the size,  so guys please, please this is very important, i need the css to adjust the size, of all the css @Danny has provided on the forum i cant see anyone that focus on the size reduction except on hiding the bottom meta area, mine is just to reduce the size, checkout the images below, the image with 4 rows is the perfect size i crave to have, while the pinpad with 3 rows is what i currently need to change.
      Thanks Guys for your support all this while.
    • CSS Hero question
      By janpeeters+
      Hi all,
      I was totally excited to find out about 'CSS Hero' ( I read about it in the compatible plugins section of the PL5 docs ( For me it's a great way to more easily customize my sites because I'm not a CSS pro.
      I'm wondering about one thing though… Does anyone know if using this will result in a heavy penalty on page loading speeds? Would love to start using it but only if it doesn't cost too much in terms of speed.
      Thanks, Jan
