Topic: Social Button Icon's not working

nGenus pro asked 4 years ago

I have downloaded the most current version of MDBootstrap and have referenced it as I always do and yet my icons in anything (in this case the button social icon) doesn't work. it only shows the button and the caption that I put in it (Facebook). I'm having this issue throughout with all icons.

I'm using MVC Core 2.2 and my css files and js files are referencing just fine. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

How can we reproduce your issue?

You are using faicons, right?

Take a look into the < head> of your page and check the fontawesome version, will be some like this:

< link rel="stylesheet" href=""> (in this case the version is 5.6.3)

Now go to the fontawesome website and check if your tag is the same of their documentation (for your version)

It probably will be different... If it is, that's your problem, version conflict in fontawesome librarie, you can just change the version on < link> or change the class on < i> tag according to your fontawessome version
