    Icon Packs (Belle Icon Pack, Fontawesome, and GMD) do not work in v7.5.12 for the back office select icon

    After installing several packages, none of them add the icons to the "select icon" back office page; is it possible that this functionality was recently broken. I read through the blog post (https://creativewebspecialist.co.uk/2013/12/01/quick-tip-adding-custom-doctype-icons-to-umbraco-7/) and verified that the css files have the icon prefix; fiddler shows no 404 errors, but I also do not see the fonts being loaded (I do however see the CSS files being loaded).

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I don't mind debugging this, but I don't quite know where to go from here.

    i have worked with fontawesome..have to write given code manually after adding several packages (in one of those FontAwesome icon dropdown was added )

    @using umbraco.MacroEngines
    <i class="fa @Model.MacroParameters["iconheader"]" aria-hidden="true"></i>
    

    in partial view macro file with iconheader as alias in macros folder.

    Dont know if i m making sense..but do tell me the solution which worked for you.

    Right, for the front end, I had the understanding that this added icons for the picker for things like the document type icon up on the header of the document settings; at least that was my understanding from the blog posting I referenced.

    For the front end, we just include the fontawesome package using nugget and reference it directly in the html.

    actually John,those document type icon which we have .. are inbuilt functionality...and there is actually no specific need to have fontawesome icon in back office for doctype ..cause that thing is not actually going to display on website...those icons are for someone who is writing content in umbraco Cms....

    i also haven't tried to add more icons for that doctype thing....but it would be cool to do so..in order to make backoffice look more appealing.

    Hi john, i found something..though i didnt have enough time to implement it..but it will surely give u some more material in this case.

    oppsie..sorry for my mistake. now i will definitely try to implement this on my end :-)

    Edit 1: i just installed "Belle Icon Pack" from Umbraco CMS.And reload the website...and this installed so many icons for back office(refer screen shot) which i dont think were there before installation.. Yup..it work nicely on my end.enter image description here

    What version of Umbraco are you using?

    With Umbraco 7.6, it seems to be impossible to get more icons from the different packages (Belle, Font Awesome, Material Design, Custico...): even when package installation is OK, no new icons appear in the picker.

    Did someone succeed?

    It was working again in 7.6.3, but it looks like it is broke in 7.6.4

    Anyone have experienced these packages — or other solutions — to supplement icons in recent releases of Umbraco?

    Also interested here, particularly because I'd like to include FontAwesome 5

    I have just checked the Material Design Icon Pack on different Umbraco version: 7.5.13, 7.6.2 and 7.6.6

    enter image description here

    enter image description here

    enter image description here

    I have no issues with seeing the icons in the icon picker.
