Hi, I'm setting up a forum and when I change the font awesome icons on the forum from the following, nothing happens:

was: fas fa-comments

is: far fa-credit-card

It doesn't change any of the icons, even on a hard refresh (ctrl + f5). How do I get it to change to different font awesome icons?

thank you

Β

Hi @mpearson65,

Please let us know the code you're added? We've just checked and it work, the icon changes correctly. You just need to change the content value.Β 

Please trey the following CSS code:

.fa-comments:before {
content: "\f09d" !important;
}

The code should be added in the Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Styles admin page "Cutom CSS Code" textarea.

Don't forget to delete all caches and press CTRL+F5(twice) on the frontend before checking.
