FAQ

How do I use the shortcodes.

From the WordPress visual editor you can add a shortcode via the box shortcode icon.

To use the plugin manually insert the shortcode below into your WordPress post or page content area.

[box icon="fa-wordpress" color="blue" url="https://wordpress.org"]Visit WordPress.org[/box]<pre><code></code></pre>

The shortcode accepts two parameters of icon="" and url="" which are explained below.

The icon="" parameter will accept any Font Awesome icon code which looks like this fa-warning as an example

For a full list of all the icons you can use within the shortcode these are available with the relevant codes on the Font Awesome Cheat Sheet.

The url="" parameter will accept any url internal or external url you add to it.

The color="" parameter allows you to choose one of the predefined colors listed below

Also don't forget to add some text content between the shortcode containers too!

How can I disable the plugins default font awesome stylesheet as my theme is loading it's own?

There is a filter inside the Font Awesome Box Shortcode plugin titled enqueued_fabs_font_awesome_filter which you can use to specify your themes enqueued version of Font Awesome which will then disable the plugin version from loading.

If your themes loaded version of font awesome has been enqueued as font-awesome then you don't need to use any filters as the plugin will detect that loaded script and not load it's own version of the Font Awesome stylesheet from MAX CDN.

If your existing loaded version of Font Awesome has been enqueued under a different name like my_themes_fontawesome as an example then you would have to use the filter below to specify the name under which your current version was being enqueued.
