    Hey guys,

    Thanks for the help…none of this is very relavant. The fact that I had it 404ing on CodePen was a minor mistake, and I am not loading them from my server locally. @deontbenton I really appreciate the explanation though I already understand most of what you wanted. I was really trying to go for the :before method via the class names…as I have had made this work before. I was trying to figure out if I made a silly mistake but I guess I haven’t, and I’ll just have to figure something out. @Chrisburton I didn’t actually experience any difference in your version, still not seeing the icons show up, so I’m assuming it’s my problem. However it still irks me, because that other time I made icon fonts work…it still works. Oh well, thanks for your help guys.


    You don’t have to give up. We can still help you debug the issue.

    If it makes any difference, this is what I see:


    And I’m getting this:

    It’s obviously my problem…


    @knittingfrenzy18 From what I see in your codepen, the URL is wrong. You have two forward slashes in the directory before “files”.

    See here:

    The problem isn’t Chrome, it’s your code.


    ok well I fixed that. I really would like the use the :before method but it’s not working. You have added in the spans with the unicode whatevers. I don’t really want to do that, but if it’s the only solution…


    @knittingfrenzy18 If you have dropbox, message me the entire link to the folder. Or zip it and message me for my email.
