Use the fa shortcode to add a Font Awesome icon with ease.


Use the fa shortcode to quickly add a Font Awesome icon to your content. Use fa for regular icons, fab for brand icons, and fas for solid icons.


The shortcode supports unnamed arguments only and requires at least one argument. The first argument is used as the icon name without the fa- prefix. Additional (unnamed) arguments are passed as class attributes to the inner HTML element.


As an example, the following shortcodes show a square check, a brand logo, and a circle check.

{{< fa square-check >}}
{{< fab linkedin >}}
{{< fas circle-check >}}
