NS Font Awesome scores excellent on all points. It meets all the claims made for it on the website. It provides a concise introduction to Font Awesome (FA)- what it is, what it does and so on. I had several needed icons on my website within minutes. FA icons are a great addition to web development. The NS FA plugin makes the integration of FA into a Joomla website simple and straightforward. Highly recommended.

Thanks so much for doing this extension as i was getting a little confused how to add it at the font awesome website.
Your easy instructions and how to use (advise on html stripping was good) but the best bit was the link to ALLLL those icons and their varying sizes.
Thanks so much for making it one of your free extensions and super easy no hurdles download
Im hooked and 11/10 for you

My awesome fonts were not displaying on a template which stated that they should work. Well, they were not displaying on my website and I decided to install this extension. I did and voila - my awesome fonts were showing! Thank you!

Simple story;

I needed to use Font Awesome icons in my Joomla 2.5 website.

I downloaded this plugin, enabled it and it simply worked.

Nice work guys!

Rather than installing Font Awesome manually, I just installed this app in less than a minute and was then able to add my CSS code to reference the Font Awesome icons.

It's a great plugin, does what it's supposed to do. Love it.

To be honest, I've only found about 1% of extensions for Joomla 3.x to be useful, and this extension is in the 1%. It's straightforward to use, does not contain a bunch of convoluted explanation, and simply provides the necessary files/paths in Joomla for you to be able to seamlessly incorporate the latest FontAwesome fonts anywhere in your design. I'm using it in bootstrap buttons, etc. Very easy to consult the FontAwesome website for the correct syntax to use in the class for exacting results. Trying to incorporate IcoMoon fonts and other font icon libraries into my custom templates was a pain, but this extension made using FontAwesome a breeze for my Joomla 3.2.x installation. "Thank you, thank you" to the developer.
