Hi folks,
I'm following this advice: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/creating-custom-user-banner-styling.7334/
to create custom styling for a banner.
I want to use the Patreon logo instead of the star showing in the example.

In extra.less I put
/* ### Patron user banner ### */
&:before {
padding-right: 4px;

The star (fa-var-star) works. The patreon logo doesn't. I get the square you always get when the character doesn't exist.
