I love the addition of FontAwesome in the menu items.  It seems that the version 4.7 icons will not show up.  I am assuming that only a previous version of the icons will show up as most of the version 3.X icons have no problems.

1. Is there a way to update the program to read 4.7+ icons?

2. When I use them on a website, I use the CDN. Since with CDN, I get a unique embed code, it automatically upgrades to the latest version of Font Awesome without pushing any code. In future version of CMSB, maybe a spot to add the CDN code would be great.  

Thanks!

Hi Kenny,

1. Is there a way to update the program to read 4.7+ icons?

Yes, you can update some of the fontawesome files and URL to fontawesome CSS in the code. Make backups of any changes first.

Download the fontawesome files from the site here:
http://fontawesome.io/

Copy the /font-awesome-4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css
to
/cmsb/3rdParty/clipone/plugins/font-awesome/css/font-awesome.min.css

Copy /font-awesome-4.7.0/fonts/* all files
to
/cmsb/3rdParty/clipone/plugins/font-awesome/fonts/* all files

Open and edit  /cmsb/lib/menus/header_css.php
On line 10, change this:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.6.3/css/font-awesome.min.css">

to this:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css">

2. When I use them on a website, I use the CDN. Since with CDN, I get a unique embed code, it automatically upgrades to the latest version of Font Awesome without pushing any code. In future version of CMSB, maybe a spot to add the CDN code would be great.

Good idea. I will pass this on to the internal development team. Would probably need a fallback solution as well for users that want icons to work "right out of the box".

Thanks!
