How to change forum icons


Staff member
In XenForo 2 the forum icons are created using font awesome. Here are instructions to change the forum icons from the default font aweome icon to another font awesome icon.

Select the font awesome you would like to use from their website:

Then add the following to your extra.less template:

.node--forum .node-icon i::before, .node--category .node-icon i::before {
    content: "\f085";

In the above example I'm showing the \f085 icon. Replace that number with the icon you want.
