Reviews

I love the style of Font awesome icons and their great variety. And now they are all in one package in my CKEditor with a search option. That is so great!

There are tools for settings style, size, color, and even transform. Thanks!

I have an Emoticons plugin for Tiny editor. And I definitely use Font Awesome icons more often. It has a huge choice of icons and brand logos in a general style. The inserted icons are fully customizable.

Like Emoticons this addon is easily added and used.
