FA4all Stack

Use Font Awesome in themes that don’t support it

This stack makes it possible to use Font Awesome in themes that don’t support it. It has some options to make developing sites with Font Awesome a little easier.

Visit demo #1 to see this stack in action with Font Awesome version 5.x. Version 4.x is also supported. You can see an example on demo #2.

Drag one copy of the FA4all stack into your page. By default, the latest version of Font Awesome version 4.x is loaded, but you also use version 5.x.

There are also options to show the Font Awesome Cheat Sheet in Preview Mode (see demo #3 for version 4 and demo #4 for version 5) and prevent the loading of Font Awesome. These options are meant for development only; not for use in a real site!

When the visitor has JavaScript disabled in his browser, the stack will not work properly.
In Edit mode, icons will not always show.
Using this stack on pages with a theme that already provides Font Awesome (any version) may lead to unpredictable results.
This stack does not support Internet Explorer 8 and worse. If support for those browsers is essential, you will need to find a different solution to load the Font Awesome stylesheet (visit the Font Awesome website for more information).
