How To Add Icons

To insert an icon, add the name of the icon class to any inline HTML element.

The <i> and <span> elements are widely used to add icons.

All the icons in the icon libraries below, are scalable vector icons that can be customized with CSS (size, color, shadow, etc.)

To use the Font Awesome icons, add the following line inside the <head> section of your HTML page:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css">
