Font-awesome not showing icons

Hi there,

I’m not technical at all and I use Sydney (great theme).

I have some services on my site and I’ve previously had icons for them. I am now changing my services and need to change my icons, but the only ones that show up are the ones I’ve used before, otherwise there is just an empty circle. ( - under Core Services see Data Analysis -the third service offered)

I would typically go to the service info section and enter the icon code - e.g. fa-stethascope and that still works, but now when I enter anything else like fa-cart-line, nothing comes up.

Would you be able to explain in a non-tech manner what I needs to do to fix this?

Thank you so much for your help



  1. user-ninja icon appeared in Font Awesome 5.0, Sydney theme currently contains Font Awesome 4.7

  2. chart-line is a new name in Font Awesome 5.0, please use previous name for now, line-chart.
    You can check this link for more details.

Also you can try to use Better Font Awesome plugin as a workaround to get the latest version.

Please feel free to ask any other questions that you might have.

Kind Regards, Roman.

having a similar problem, added the Better Font Awesome plugin which didn’t seem to work

Yeah, the plugin also doesn’t support version 5 yet, unfortunately:

Kind Regards, Roman.
