Icons are not appearing correctly in wpForo on my company’s website. They show up as rectangles with 4 tiny letters/numbers inside. I am also having a glitch on the same page with my regular website footer – our social media icons are showing up as the same rectangles….but they appear ok on every other page on the website. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I also have trouble getting the “login” and “create an account” buttons to show consistently.

Hi @eviolette

your wordpress theme overwrites the icon font

add this to custom css

#wpforo #wpforo-wrap .fa, #wpforo #wpforo-wrap .fab, #wpforo #wpforo-wrap .far, #wpforo #wpforo-wrap .fas {
  font-family: "Font Awesome 6 Free" !important;
}

Dashboard > wpForo > Settings > Colors & Styles > Custom CSS

Thank you so much @Tutrix - the additional CSS code fixed everything!
