FontAwesome conflict?

Recommended Posts

sheilahoff

I have used a plug-in called Lightweight Social Icons which uses FontAwesome to create the social icons. I've used it successfully on a non-DMS site recently and decided to also use it in the footer of a new DMS site currently under development.

 

You can see that the plugin is working in that I get the tool tips and the links are actually there. But no matter how I set the colors including ALL options black, no icons. What am I doing wrong?

 

It's the footer of this site, bottom right here: http://perfect-image.flywheelsites.com/

 

Note that the font-awesome icons in the header are placed there via the Business Branding section. That's why I wonder if it's a conflict. But not sure what to do.

Hi Sheila,

 

As far as I can tell that widget/plugin is using Fontello, which is an icon generator, it also uses the !important declaration on almost of properties. This isn't something we can assist you with you will need to speak to the developer of the plugin. As font awesome works with no issue in DMS.

Thanks Danny I didn't notice that. I have already asked the plugin dev. But it's looking like Fontello doesn't play well with having FontAwesome also installed. Bummer.

I just want to say that I removed the plug-in and used simple code and I'm all set. For those who come after me here's the code I used in a text widget for the footer...

<div class="list-group" ><span style="font-size: 30px" >
  <a class="list-group-item" href="https://twitter.com/perfectImageLLC"><i class="fa icon-twitter"></i></a>
  <a class="list-group-item" href="http://instagram.com/perfectimagellc?ref=badge"><i class="fa icon-instagram"></i></a>
  <a class="list-group-item" href="https://www.facebook.com/PerfectImageLLC"><i class="fa icon-facebook"></i></a>
  <a class="list-group-item" href="http://pinterest.com/perfectimagellc/"><i class="fa icon-pinterest"></i></a></span>
</div>

The code you provide above isn't valid, you have spam instead of span.

Danny...that typo was made when I was changing it from upper to lowercase on the post. On the site it correctly says span. But what else is not valid? Can you provide the correction? It's actually working for me as is.

Well if you have corrected the spam to span, then the issue is closed.

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
