How to use font awesome


i tried including a icon but it didn’t appear. i referred font awesome website,but don’t know how to use it…
here’s the link to the portfolio


Hello jamilwa,
I have seen your code . Things I will suggest are:

  1. Use your font-awesome cdn in the Pen Setting>HTML>Stuff for “head” . Like you included the meta tag.
  2. In your LinkedIn button , you are closing the i tag twice .

Try changing it.


thanks vipulrawat .
i have fixed the tag…but i’m confused about font-awesome thing you asked me to add…
i never added the meta tag…i guess meta tag was added by default…
can you tell me in detail how to add the font awesome?


In your Pen Settings, click CSS and type in ‘font-awesome’ in the blank field under Add External CSS; the font-awesome stylesheet should pop up.

Or, alternatively, link to the CDN in the head section, rather than to your local download of Font Awesome; you can find the latest CDN link here.


thank you so much gcamacho…it’s working :laughing:
