    The provided CDN is not good enough? :)

    I think because so many sites are beginning to use it more, sometimes I have noticed it being slower than my own site. Also regardless, you're still adding another lookup by using something off site.

    I think it's good practice to not depend on an outside source whenever possible. And for those who would agree, they now have a clear guide on how to do it themselves.

    Tip:

    When adding your domain name, add only your domain name....

    Bad:

    http://domain.com
    www.domain.com

    Good:

    domain.com

    What if your domain is on a sub domain like www?

    :rolleyes:

    www.www.domain.com

    Nice idea. :D

    So somebody that doesn't use a www subdomain is required to create one, just to use this add-on?

    Glad I didn't download it.

    Instead of declaring the domain, I just use this code:
    Code:
    /font-awesome/css/font-awesome.min.css

    Does not work in all instances.

    Also wrote the guide as generic as possible to include all possible setups including cookieless domains.

    On what scenario it will not work?
    FontAweSome files are now hosted locally on my server, I didn't notice any problems here.

    Your way works on just fine on my desktop. (y)

    But when using a an old kindle, so older version of Android (not so well). Could be just browser dependent? :cautious:

    Either way, I'll keep the guide 'as is' to include the possibility of cookieless domains (and maybe backward compatibility).

    FYI....

    Your navigation seems to have a small issue when I scroll down ... notice the missing photo next to the "FORUMS" menu

    Something to do with pagespeed, reload the page and all issue is gone.
    That issue is just happening on new visitors.
    And only happens on Chrome browser.
    Don't know how to fix :(

    Should be fixed now :)

    Care to share how you resolved it?

    I don't use pagespeed, but I imagine others here may

    I disable LazyLoad Image filter of ngx_pagespeed cause it's buggy right now.
    Would this one not enough?
    Code:
    //www.phcorner.net/font-awesome/css/font-awesome.min.css
