I was trying to use some of the newer font awesome icons with Perth Pro. I went through the forums and tried a bunch of different solutions.
I use a child theme so I tried using the info here: Icons on services, and load the icons manually basically following the directions here: https://fontawesome.com/how-to-use/on-the-web/setup/hosting-font-awesome-yourself. That didn’t seem to work.
I then tried using the plugin and updating my .htaccess with the code mentioned from in a support ticket. That didn’t work with the following message in the plugin settings:
The Font Awesome plugin has experienced a fatal error : Sorry, your WordPress server was unable to contact the Font Awesome server to retrieve available releases data. Most likely, just re-loading this page to get it try again should work. But if you’re running WordPress offline, from an airplane, or in some other way that blocks your WordPress server from reaching fontawesome, then that will block you from proceeding until you can connect successfully.
Any thoughts? Thanks.
