Expected behavior I'm wanting some social media buttons to show on my webpage

Actual behavior When putting in the MDBicons (for example: ) I get a gray empty box like what's showing below. I've even tried svg's and font awesome icons the same way and still got the same result. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Resources (screenshots, code snippets etc.)

<i class="fab fa-facebook-f"></i>

gray box

would you create a snippet showing the problem here: or paste here a link to your demo page when I can see the problem live?

Best, Marta

Hey Marta, When I put it in the snippets, it shows the icon, but when I run the live server in VSCode, it shows as a grey box. Why is that?

I figured out another way to do it. Thanks though!
