I loaded up my website and noticed that all my icons were gone! I even when into the backend of wordpress to re-add them, i found that they were gone there as well!
Well my simple fix was this.

I went to https://fontawesome.com/start and copied the “link” tag which loads the font awesome library to your website.

Add font awesome to your wordpress site

this is the link tag i copied.

<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.7.2/css/all.css” integrity=”sha384-fnmOCqbTlWIlj8LyTjo7mOUStjsKC4pOpQbqyi7RrhN7udi9RwhKkMHpvLbHG9Sr” crossorigin=”anonymous”>


But i recommend you go to the actual site above, and copy the link yourself. As you can see there is a certain version the link is pulling up and you’ll want the most recent version. (which probably won’t be mine.)


Then go to your WordPress Dashboard and try and find a place in your Theme options where you can add to the <head>

Which mine looked like this and was labeled. “Space before </head>” .

Then simply add in that code you copied from https://fontawesome.com/start


And you should be able to again see the icons that were making your site look beautiful just days ago!

Hope this helped you out!
