This code imports the Font Awesome CSS file from a CDN (Content Delivery Network).

Step 2: Add an Icon

  • Click on the plus icon (+) that appears when you hover over the selected element.
  • In the dropdown menu that appears, select “Add Symbol”.

A dialog box will appear with various symbol options. You can search for specific icons using keywords or browse through different categories provided by Font Awesome.

Step 3: Customize the Icon

Once you have added an icon, you can customize its appearance using Webflow’s styling options.

  • Select the icon element on your canvas.
  • Go to the “Style” tab in the right sidebar.

  • Here, you can change the icon’s size, color, and position using the available options.

Webflow allows you to style Font Awesome icons just like any other element on your website.

Step 4: Preview and Publish

After you have added and customized your Font Awesome icons, it’s time to preview and publish your Webflow project.

  • Click on the “Preview” button located at the top right corner of the designer panel to see how your website looks with Font Awesome icons.
