Using Built-in Font Awesome Fonts In DIVI

Divi theme has some built in icons that you can call in a style sheet such as the following:

.someclass:before {
font-family: “ETmodules”;
content: “\6c”;
}

This will give me the icon of a pad and pencil.

I originally got this tip from Josh Hall on YouTube. Thanks for sharing Josh!

This issue I had was being able to figure out the code number for which Icon. The code numbers do not match Font Awesome font codes.

I finally found Elegant Themes cheat sheet for these icons.

WordPress Creating A Child Theme

With WordPress themes it is always better to create a Child Theme when you can so when your theme has a update your time spent customizing the CSS isn’t lost.

I stumbled onto the following page the other day that was a great help to get started. I was use to just writing my own, but this saved a bunch of time.
