Update font awesome icons

Hey can’t you guys update to the latest font awesome package? There are some out-dated fonts like instagram has the old look and stuff like that.

Would appriciate it!

Hello there,

Thank you for suggesting. I am going to talk to our developer. Meanwhile, you could use this plugin.

I have changed the font awesome to the latest but they will be removed to the old ones when i update to new version of sydney. I´m using sydney child theme but how can i make sure the fonts dont get overwritten?

Hello there,

Please never change any single code in the main theme. You can add the following function into your child theme to stop your site loads the Font Awesome from parent theme but loads it from other source.


function sydney_child_loads_font_awesome_script() {
   // Remove Font Awesome from main theme
   wp_dequeue_style( 'sydney-font-awesome' );
   // Load latest version of Font Awesome
   wp_enqueue_style( 'sydney-font-awesome-cdn', 'https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css' );
}
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'sydney_child_loads_font_awesome_script', 999 );
