Icon Gutenberg block by Getwid is a very simple and handy block for adding and customizing Font Awesome icons in the Gutenberg WordPress Block Editor.

Use them to present any iconography-related content from services to social icons in a simplified yet meaningful format.

Note: you can use another set of icons instead of Font Awesome with this block. For example, here is one of the solutions.

In these examples, we used a default combination of colors in the Luviana theme. However, the block will work well with any other WordPress theme, including the official Twenty Nineteen theme for blogs.

We also always encourage Getwid users to give a try to Getwid Base – a free Gutenberg theme made with a combination of Getwid and Gutenberg blocks. It provides probably the most flawless content customization experience in the WordPress Block Editor paired with Getwid.

  1. I love the icon box block!
    Is there any intelligent way to replace the iconset so you can use your own icons or maybe even add them to the list?

  2. Hi,

    I used an icon block with two down facing arrows, but these arrows don’t display. The only thing that is shown is a square. No matter which icon I choose.

    How can I solve this problem?

    Best regards

    1. Hi David,
      It looks like there is installed a third-party plugin that overrides the version of the FontAwesome. Could you try disabling plugins one by one to find out what plugin causes a conflict?
