    I have written about this before here… I figured out how to do it with the etsy button in style.css but when I do the exact same thing for the paypal button it doesn’t work.

    My website is schadenfreudeart.com

    This is the code I’ve put in

    .photo_perfect_widget_social ul li a[href*=”etsy.com”]:before {
    content: “\f2d7″;
    .photo_perfect_widget_social ul li a[href*=”paypal.com”]:before {
    content: “\f1ed”;

    top one is etsy, bottom one is paypal.

    The info for paypal on FontAwesome is here.

    I also have the font awesome plugin installed but I don’t think that it works along with the social footer stuff.


    I have also tried to use the unicode for this button: here.

    If none of these are doable, is there a way to put a paypal donate button with paypal’s provided html/icon?

    <form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post" target="_top">
    <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
    <input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="XXGDJXA3V39TS">
    <input type="image" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donateCC_LG.gif" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
    <img alt="" border="0" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" width="1" height="1">

    I’d prefer the font awesome icon because the paypal button is kinda ugly
    but y’know whatever works.

    Unrelated, but I’m thinking of upgrading to the pro theme because it has a store and is generally awesome: would I lose all of my work and have to start over (with the customization?)



    Hello @schadenfreude,

    The paypal font awesome icon is not bundled within the theme so you are unable to show the icon.

    However you can still try to use the plugins to solve your issue .

    You can find many plugins and below is the link to one of them.


    Note: We cannot assure 100% compatibility of the plugin with the theme as we have not done compatibility testing of the plugin with the theme.

    Hope this helps.

    Best Regards!!
