Add a Font Awesome icon field type to Advanced Custom Fields.

  • Optionally set a default icon
  • Specify which FontAwesome icon sets to use (Solid, Regular, Light, Brands) (Applies to FontAwesome v5)
  • Create your own custom filtered list of FontAwesome icons to use with your fields. Use different custom icon sets with different fields
  • Returns Icon Element, Icon Class, Icon Unicode, or an Object including the element, class, and unicode value
  • Optionally enqueues Font Awesome in footer where needed (when a FontAwesome field is being used on the page)
  • Integrates with jsDelivr to automatically load the latest version of Font Awesome

Note: It is recommended to let this plugin enqueue the latest version of Font Awesome on your front-end; or include the latest version by some other means; so that available icons in the admin area will be displayed properly on your sites front-end.

Compatibility

This ACF field type is compatible with: * ACF 5.7+ * FontAwesome 4.x and 5.x fonts
