    Why cant i output fontawesome icon

    Hi every one. i use umbraco 8 the newest version. I have made a page showing 3 different topics, each with their own icon. I would like to be able to replace the icon if necessary.

    I have made the document type with a text string where I can insert the fontawesome icon code <i class="fas fa-desktop"></i>, but when I have to show it in front then nothing comes. What do i do wrong

    Heres is my code

    var selection3 =   Umbraco.Content(Guid.Parse("99c1f202-0f34-4cca-8bc8-2376752fd158")).Children().Where(x => x.IsVisible()).OrderByDescending(x => x.CreateDate);
    
         @foreach (var item in selection3)
                    {
                        <div class="col-md-4 services-box">
                            <span class="fa-stack fa-4x">
    
                                <i class="fa @item.Value("fontawesomeIkon").ToString();"></i>
                            </span>
                            <h4 class="service-heading">@item.Name</h4>
                            <p class="text-muted">@Model.Value("serviceTeaser")</p>
                            <a class="btn btn-block btn-laes-mere" href="@item.Url">Læs mere</a>
                        </div>
                    }

    What's actually being rendered on the front end with that code?

    Hi Mikkel

    Further to Amir's good suggestion, have you checked the font awesome font is loading correctly in the page, ie you are calling the CDN, or your local CSS references are correct ?

    Cheers

    Could it be your closing ; after ToString()?

    Since you are outputting, I would assume your class is looking like this: class=“fa fa-desktop;”

    Try removing the closing ;

    I have solved y problem. in the foreach loop i was using @Model.Value("fontawesomeIkon").ToString(); I had to use

    @item.FontawesomeIkon  fa-circle fa-stack-2x text-primary
    

    So my foreach loop look like this now. I also had to make a variable myself so I got hold of the other document types var selection4 = Model.FirstChild<MlpWebServices>().Children<Ydelse>();

    var selection4 = Model.FirstChild<MlpWebServices>().Children<Ydelse>();
        @foreach (var item in selection4)
                {
                    <div class="col-md-4 services-box">
                        <span class="fa-stack fa-4x">
    
                            <i class="@item.FontawesomeIkon  fa-circle fa-stack-2x text-primary"></i>
                        </span>
                        <h4 class="service-heading">@item.Name</h4>
                        <p class="text-muted">@item.Value("serviceTeaser").ToString();</p>
                        <a class="btn btn-block btn-laes-mere" href="@item.Url">Læs mere</a>
                    </div>
                }
