Current version: 2.3.1 | Released: 2017-06-15

Tested with:

WordPress: 4.8

Divi: 3.0.51

Extra: 2.0.50

Divi Builder: 2.0.13

(It might work with other versions and other themes as well, but not guaranteed. It usually does. 😉 )


With the Font Awesome for Divi Builder plugin you will be able to use Font Awesome – the iconic font and CSS toolkit – on your Divi Builder powered WordPress site. The plugin is compatible with the Divi Builder plugin, the Divi theme and the Extra theme.

No programming needed, just activate, check a box, copy a code and you are ready to go.

Note: you will need to generate your own Font Awesome embed code here! It is not provided by The Divi Magazine.

You can easily customize the look and feel of lists based on your needs without any CSS coding. Just look for the settings in the WordPress admin under Divi > Font Awesome or Extra > Font Awesome.

The plugin does not (yet) provide a UI for inserting icons into your content. To see how you can use specific fonts, please refer to the Examples page of Font Awesome.

Note: The plugin was specifically created for use with the Divi Builder plugin, or the themes Divi and Extra (from Elegant Themes). It might work with other themes as well, but not guaranteed. Using a child theme is highly recommended.
