i hope you can help me.

Hi Marcus3

This must be something simple
I could upload the theme my self and have a look

But did you test it locally on your laptop ?
I just checked the verti theme locally on my laptop
and the envelope and phone are showing up correctly

Did you check on relative / absolute paths ?
hello felix,
how can i check relative/absolute paths?

thanks a lot...marcus

I see that you want to use the icons phone and envelope that do not show up.

I uploaded the verti theme online for a quick check:

There are no problems with using phone and envelope with the fontawesome fonts
in the /assets/fonts/ library

Seems to work:
<a href="#" class="icon fa-phone"><span class="label">Phone</span></a>
<a href="#" class="icon fa-envelope"><span class="label">Envelope</span></a>

In case of different versions of fontawesome you can try to add fa or fas
like this:

<a href="#" class="icon fa fa-phone"><span class="label">Phone</span></a>
<a href="#" class="icon fa fa-envelope"><span class="label">Envelope</span></a>

Just let us know how it is going.

it doesn't work.

i dont know what to do


I send you a private message in 5 min.

thanks a lot
i think i have the problem.

in the header i wrote an additional stylesheet:

<link href="" rel="stylesheet">

now it seems to function.

thanks, marcus

Found this website with possible solutions.
It is from wordpress but the checklist makes real sense:
To reduce the fontawesome file size you can remove eot, svg, ttf woff2 and otf

Based on browser support you really only need woff

An even nicer solution to use only the fontawesome icons you need:
