Font Awesome Icons was created by Florent Chehab
Hello and Happy New Year !

I have been using this template for several years now, and since few months I have experienced issues with all the Font Awesome Icons on my website. I've looked on the internet but didn't find any helpfull post.

I manually managed to force some icons to work, but it works only in specific cases.

I'm no expert however when I "inspect" my webpage, this error shows up :

Thanks for your help in this matter.

Hello!

I think I am using the latest version of the template (1.0.6 says template.css) (weirdly, when I inspect the code it says 1.0.5 and I don’t know why).

I have tried to update the template, the menus/navigation icons were back, however all the font awesome icons were showing either as square or Chinese characters, and the alert message concerning the cdn was still there.

I have made very few tweaks to template.css and custom.css only. But it shouldn’t interfere.

Here is a screenshot of the template parameters and the non-working font awesome characters.

It seems that yours server not allows download font from other domains.
