Font Awesome icons

Font Awesome is a variety of scalable vector icons that can instantly be customized — size, color, shadow, and other changes that can be done with the power of CSS.

You can use any of 650+ icons free of charge anywhere in your Help Center (layout, articles, etc.). They are already included in all our themes. Find all Font Awesome icons and their codes on this page.

Font Awesome inside the text

It is rather easy to insert a Font Awesome icon to any text of your Help Center  . Font Awesome is completely free for commercial use  . The icons are vector, which means they're gorgeous on high-resolution displays  . It is very easy to make your own design by changing icons' color, size, shadow, and anything that's possible with CSS  .

Font Awesome titles

Additionally, you can use any icons from Font Awesome library to make your titles more eye-catching.

  Title with a motorcycle

  Title with a calculator

  Title with binoculars

  Title with a heartbeat

And not only your titles:

 

Tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms further... And then one fine morning So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

 

Animate them!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

And mix them:

 
 

fa-twitter and fa-square-o

 
 

fa-flag and fa-circle

 
 

fa-terminal and fa-square
