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:
Copy the /font-awesome-4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css
Copy /font-awesome-4.7.0/fonts/* all files
/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">
<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".
