Hi there,

I used this guide a few years ago and have been using those prefixes with icons for many years now. I recently upgraded my forum to XF 2.1 and I know that they changed how Font Awesome works (using FA5 instead of FA4), so as a result of this, all of my prefixes no longer display an icon but I stream display a box. I’ve tried updating the code myself with my limited CSS knowledge, but I have yet to get anywhere. Any idea how to get these icons working again on XF 2.1?

Thanks for your time! :)

EDIT: I originally found that tutorial on the XenForo support forum for free, but it looks like it requires an account upgrade here to view it. I am willing to pay for an account upgrade in order to get this working if need be.

One more question: I know they have different styles in Font Awesome 5- light, regular, and solid. Can we differentiate between them using the CSS you listed within that thread? And if so, I’m assuming we would have to change “fa” to “fal/far/fas”? Thanks!
