PSA: FLEX uses FontAwesome for its icons

Nick 4 years ago in BLOX CMS 0

This is a two part post. The first part is to suggest a "PSA" topic type for community.townnews.com similar to the "Ideas" "Questions" "Praises." If there's a trick we've learned that isn't template busting or anything it would be cool to be able to share that, especially if it isn't included in help.bloxcms.com. So for the first PSA...


For those of you who use FLEX if you ever want to make use of the text icons you see here and there on your site you can add tons of other fonts. FLEX uses a font called FontAwesome to deliver vector icons. What icons does this include? Check here to see a list of icons: http://fontawesome.io/icons/.


It seems like they only have those listed under "Web Application Icons" and not those included in 4.6. You can even click the icon and it will tell you what code to put on your site.


So if my site had a Harry Potter section and we wanted to include a somewhere we just have to put: <i class="fa fa-bolt" aria-hidden="true"></i>


Have fun!
