You can edit the global footer from ACP>Extend>Widgets
I have noticed there are icons for some badges on the community site and can't figure out how it was done.
I have tried adding
::before element styling on the span inside the href with no luck, i only get an empty square so i'm guessing that even with the emoji plugin and font awesome emoji plugin the font is not actually included. Do i just need to include the font manually with a custom header?
What exactly did you try? The font awesome font is always loaded.
@pitaj maybe I was trying the wrong font family then. I tried just 'Font Awesome' and 'Font Awesome 4'.
I'll post the CSS shortly.
