Font Awesome Conflict

My theme (SimpleMag) uses Font Awesome to display several of the site’s icons. However, it appears that rtMedia ALSO uses it… so when I have both enabled, rtMedia breaks the display of my theme.

Ideally, I’d like to be able to disable the feature on rtMedia, or have an alternative (ie, the ability to use a Sprite instead).

If any of you can think of some other simple workaround, I’d be interested in hearing it.

Can you give your site URL so that we can debug the issue properly.

My site is Notice the social media icons in the top navigation bar, near the search field.

Use this code to dequeue FontAwesome loaded by rtMedia in your theme’s functions.php file.

add_action( 'wp_print_styles', 'de_style', 100 );  

function de_style() {  
    wp_dequeue_style( 'rtmedia-font-awesome' );  

Wow… thanks! I didn’t expect this level of support; you guys are awesome :slight_smile:
