Font Awesome 4.5

Permalink 2 users found helpful
Dave Gandy has released Font Awesome version 4.5, why is Concrete5 not in the icon list?

I have asked several people to help include the C5 icon, even Dave directly. I don't do 'Github', so thought the C5 icon might filter in through some other means, obviously not?

Could somebody help with this?

Second time it's been missed out?

I reckon it would be great to include.

It would mean the concrete5 interface could use it too (instead of the PNG).

Hi Steevb,

A concrete5 Font Awesome icon was requested in Sep 25, 2013.

"Icon Request: Concrete5 icon #2033"
https://github.com/FortAwesome/Font-Awesome/issues/2033...

I found a MODX (another CMS) font icon in the newest Font Awesome. I believe it is less popular than concrete5.
http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/icon/modx/...

What appears to make a difference is how many "+1" comments a font request gets.

Requesting New Icons
"2. Please search to see if your icon request already exists. If a request is found, please +1 that one."
http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/community/...

The MODX request was opened on May 17, 2014 and was just added to Font Awesome 2 days ago. It had 161 "+1" comments.

The concrete5 request only has 9 "+1" comments. We need a lot more unique "+1" comments to be considered for the next Font Awesome release.

For anyone reading this, please "+1" the concrete5 icon request. You will need a free GitHub account to comment. Signing up is painless and quick.

Just one note to add to this:
He is likely to accept any brand icons that draw enough attention (as I think everyone here agrees with).

The GitHub issue for the c5 icon has drawn about 20 votes in 2 years (avg of 10 votes / year).

The GitHub issue for modx drew 191 votes in 1,5 years.

So based on this, getting the icon accepted would required quite a lot more activity from the community. Maybe 100 more votes at least?

The GitHub project for modx also has more than 3x the stars that c5.7 has (and it also has more stars than the concrete5 legacy version). So, I wouldn't directly claim that the project is far less popular (not trying to bash down c5 here, just stating the facts).

I agree, we need a LOT more community involvement for this to succeed.

What I meant by popular was how many sites are made with MODX. I took a look at a few CMS trackers and it showed that concrete5 use was often double MODX (I am not sure how accurate the CMS trackers are).

I think you make a good point about the stars for concrete5. Getting more concrete5 stars would be good not just for helping with getting a Font Awesome icon.

Now at 26 "+1" votes.

I think a goal of 150 more in a short period should raise attention. Please, remember to vote.

If you have already voted "+1", see if you know other concrete5 users who haven't and encourage them to vote.

We have +1 this on Git - will also share the link via Twitter etc. Would be a great addition to the font.

Currently the concrete5 icon is the 85th most requested icon at only 44 votes - we need the community as a whole to pull together on this one and get up to 200+ votes; which would see us top spot and hopefully then get some visibility from Dave. Cheers

At least "IcoFont" thought of us... The concrete5 icon is in there!

IcoFont just released it's Alpha (1.0.0) version today.
