Hi,
I bought Font awesome 5 Pro to use on my website. How can I do to use on Finance Template?
Many thanks in advance

Hi,
It may be problematic because:
1) Font awesome 5 is not compatible with font awesome 4.7. They are separate products.
2) This template and SP Page Builder by default use FA 4.7 only.

But...
Instructions how to implement FA5 you can find on their project site, and in Helix documentation, there is info on how to use custom code in the template header. Then you have to use HTML mode to add needed icon classes from FA5. Anyway, it won't be so easy as with built-in FA 4.7, sorry.

Hi Paul, sorry we are coming up again with this.

With fontawesome 5.11 there are now available 325 new icons and also a duotone version. We bought Fontawesome pro and using it on other websites but we are stuck for using it on joomshaper templates

We asked some developers and they refused to do it for some reasons.

We would like to know if in the future we will be able to use fontaweome 5.11 with this template or any other joomshaper template please.

Many thanks for you help

Hi, Paul. It would be great if such capabilities could be added to the Helix Ultimate (disable and select the version of the font). It is necessary to optimize the speed of the page. In some cases, third-party extensions also loaded FA without turning off features. Thus we get a lot of connections of the same font

I agree it would be great to have the option to disable FA from Helix Ultimate. I hope soon.
By now you can just delete a link from HU code, as I do.

I can confirm two things:
1) SPPB Pro update 3.6.6 with FontAwsome 5.1x will be on Monday
2) Helix Update (next year) will add FA5, about switcher on-off probably too.

That's a great great news Paul!

One question: we are using on other sites (and paid for) Fontawesome PRO version.

Can we use it too? If yes, how?

Many thanks!

Yes Paul please try to consider the Pro version!

that's the bad news in the good news for us because we wanted to use the duotone icons https://fontawesome.com/icons?d=gallery&s=duotone

I hope this is going to be available soon!

Hi Paul and everyone.

Do we have any update on using fontawesome 5 PRO version please?

Since we paid for the fontawesome 5 PRO version we still would like to use the duotone icons

In general we think this would a great enhancement also for the SP Page builder

Thank you all

Hi Paul, while the Blessed Feast is over there is a new Fontawesome version: 6

and of course we preordered the PRO version https://fontawesome.com/6

We would like to be able to use the version 6 (in 51 days when it will be released) with our SP Page Builder Pro 3.7.3 but for the moment we would be happy to use the duotone icons with our Fontawesome 5 PRO version

Do you have any news please?

I do not reccomend this but You can use FontAwesome 5 Pro by:
1. coping font awesome font files to administrator/components/com_sppagebuilder/assets/fonts and templates/Theme Name/fonts/
2. coping content of FontAwesome files: /css/all.min.css and /css/v4-shims.min.css to templates/theme name/css/font-awesome.min.css and administrator/components/com_sppagebuilder/assets/css/font-awesome-5.min.css
3. replace all occurences of "../webfonts/" to ../fonts/ because fontawesome uses dir webfonts and Joomla themes uses "fonts"
4. Download attached tile and put it into /administrator/components/com_sppagebuilder/builder/settings/icon-font-awesome.php to use new font awesome icons list
