Social Media Emoji?

(Rob Meade) #1


Just wondering whether there are any tips/suggestions for including social media icons within Discourse?

I like the way the emoji work within Discourse, so I was thinking along the lines of :facebook: for example, but this then requires sourcing a load of icons, and they also have a habit of changing from time to time.

I notice that Font Awesome provide a free CDN, but the icons then need to be usable within posts, as opposed to typing html…

Has anyone else tried to do this, and found any good ways to approach it?

The main reason for implementing at the moment is for use within a profile card, using the composers existing hyperlink functionality, but to then include social media icons too.
