The FontAwesome extension provides parser functions to insert Font Awesome Free icons into the wiki text.

Currently Font Awesome Free, version 6.2.1 is included.


This extension defines three parser functions:

  • {{#far:...}}: inserts an icon of type FontAwesome Regular
  • {{#fas:...}}: inserts an icon of type FontAwesome Solid
  • {{#fab:...}}: inserts an icon of type FontAwesome Brands

Alternatively, the icons can be added to a page via template / content droplet.

Example: {{#fab:wikipedia-w}} inserts the "Wikipedia-W" icon.
