The Icon Element, (formerly the Font Awesome Icon Element) was renamed back in Avada 6.2. This was because of the added ability to add custom icon sets to Avada, which this element can then access. For more details on that, please see How To Upload And Use Custom Icons in Avada.
But regardless of the name change, this element is still a great way to add any of the 2,020 Free Font Awesome Icons to your content, as well as any custom fonts you want to upload. And if that’s not enough for you, you can now import custom Icon sets directly from Avada Studio. And if you’re a total icon freak, there is also Font Awesome Pro Integration in Avada, giving you access to 22,000+ Font Awesome Icons through the Avada Builder.
A full set of styling options in this Element allow you to select icon size, weight, color, background, rotation, spinning and more. And every one is 100% full vector, so they look incredibly sharp and are retina-ready! Read below for an overview of the specific features of this awesome Element.
How To Use The Icon Element
The Icon Element allows you to place icons anywhere on your site. Just add the Element to your desired column.
There are three tabs in the Icon Element. The first one, General, is where you choose your font, and make some basic settings to do with size, functionality and alignment. The Icon picker was also updated with Avada 6.2 to show any installed icon sets, both Font Awesome Icon sets and Custom Icon sets. The Design tab is where you configure your selected icon’s appearance with margin, circle, color, background and border options. The Extras tab offers animation options that allow you to determine how the icon interacts with the loading of the page.
Read below for a detailed description of all element options.
Note: The Default setting will use the global settings assigned for this element at Options > Avada Builder Elements > Icon. Also, please note that the displayed options screens below show ALL the available options for the element. If you have Avada’s Option Network Dependencies turned on, you will only see options relevant to your selections, and so the options screen may look somewhat different.
