Just to be clear, I know there is already a suggestion that suggests replacing all XF sprites and icons with Font Awesome here: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/replace-all-images-with-font-awesome.63806/ But this suggestion is much more simple and potentially more do-able sooner rather than later. My suggestion is: An option in the Admin CP that allows us to select: Font Awesome Disabled Font Awesome CDN Font Awesome Local A template that is included in PAGE_CONTAINER by default That template either loads nothing, Font Awesome from the Bootstrap CDN or a locally hosted Font Awesome CSS + fonts. What this does is it will give style designers, and add-on developers and admins the ability to freely make use of Font Awesome without it having to be included manually. There are cases where some sites are making several requests for the Font Awesome CSS. Some people are adding it themselves, some people have it with their custom styles and some people have it included in one or more add-ons.
