FontAwesome icons in FAQ Body

Post by wolfgtweb » Thu Jun 10, 2021 6:25 pm

I am trying to figure out how to include FontAwesome Icons in the body of an FAQ topic. I see that FontAwesome was added way back in 2.8.0 (2013) and has been update a couple times to the latest version. I see that the icons throughout the site are from the fontawesome library. But I don't see a built in way to include fontawesome icons in the body (within the Tiny editor). Here are the things I have tried.

1. I have just tried to paste the code for the fontawesome icon in the body but it just displays the code like normal text.
2. I have tried to paste the Unicode string for the fontawesome icon in the body but again it just displays the code like text.
3. I have installed the josh18 fontawesome plugin. This is a rather old plugin and it hasn't been updated in a long time. But it is the only one I can find. I can get it to kind of work. The menu item is there and works properly and you can insert an icon. But, it does not display the icon in the editor. It just displays a box. When you save the edited FAQ, the icon does display when the FAQ is viewed (outside of the admin editor).

Any assistance to get the editor to display the icon properly? Or any way to just insert a fontawesome icon directly into the body?

Thank you for your assistance.
