I'm using the newest version of Xenforo, and when trying to set the icons in Extra.less I'm only getting FontAwesome 4 icons, not 5 :(

All the icons work, except the Discord Icon shows up as [], but the icons are the old FontAwesome 4 icons for some reason :(

Code:
.p-navEl-link
{
    &:before
    {
        .m-faBase();
        .m-faContent(@fa-var-question-square);
        display:inline-block;
        text-align:center;
        margin-right:5px;
    }

    &[data-nav-id='home']:before {.m-faContent(@fa-var-home);}
    &[data-nav-id='forums']:before {.m-faContent(@fa-var-comments);}
    &[data-nav-id='Admin']:before {.m-faContent(@fa-var-user-shield);}

Just curious, what leads you to believe that they're the version 4 of icons? Some folks get confused by the design of the icon which you can change between regular/solid/light by going to Style properties -> Typography -> Font Awesome weight

Discord is considered a "brand" icon so you need slightly different CSS:

Code:
.p-navEl-link[data-nav-id='Discord']:before { .m-faBase('Brands'); .m-faContent(@fa-var-discord); }
