Hi guys,

am trying to use font awesome on our website and for some reason nothing happens, i.e. the editor just treats it as a plain text string and truncates everyting and leaves just the last part. For example, I used <i class="fa fa-home"> fa-home on this page

but all that is showing is fa-home (i placed it under the image so that you can easily find it for example)

how can I get the actual icons to show?

Joomla itself doesn't use those class names for font awesome, it uses icon- instead of fa- so the correct classname is icon-home
