Advanced Custom Fields: Font Awesome Field

by mattkeys

Overview


Add a Font Awesome icon field type to Advanced Custom Fields.

  • Optionally set a default icon
  • Specify which FontAwesome icon sets to use (Solid, Regular, Light, Brands) (Applies to FontAwesome v5)
  • Create your own custom filtered list of FontAwesome icons to use with your fields. Use different custom icon sets with different fields
  • Returns Icon Element, Icon Class, Icon Unicode, or an Object including the element, class, and unicode value
  • Optionally enqueues Font Awesome in footer where needed (when a FontAwesome field is being used on the page)
  • Integrates with jsDelivr to automatically load the latest version of Font Awesome

Note: It is recommended to let this plugin enqueue the latest version of Font Awesome on your front-end; or include the latest version by some other means; so that available icons in the admin area will be displayed properly on your sites front-end.

Compatibility

This ACF field type is compatible with:
* ACF 5.7+
* FontAwesome 4.x and 5.x fonts

Optional Configuration

Filters

  • ACFFA_always_enqueue_fa: Return true to always enqueue FontAwesome on the frontend, even if no ACF FontAwesome fields are in use on the page. This will enqueue FontAwesome in the header instead of the footer.
  • ACFFA_admin_enqueue_fa: Return false to stop enqueueing FontAwesome in the admin area. Useful if you already have FontAwesome enqueued by some other means.
  • ACFFA_get_icons: Filter the array of icons and icon details loaded from the database
  • ACFFA_get_fa_url: Filter the URL used for enqueuing FontAwesome in the frontend and admin areas of the site.
  • ACFFA_override_major_version: Filter to manually set the ‘major’ version of FontAwesome to load (accepts either 4, or 5). NOTE: This filter must be registered before any calls to ACF get_field() function are made.
