Rich Text Editor strips font awesome tags

Vardan Hovsepyan asked on August 16, 2017 19:05


On our Kentico 10 MVC admin site, when I add font awesome icons in the rich text editor, right after saving the page or switching to design view all the icons are gone.

Any ideas why?

Thank you !

Check out this post about the ckeditor removing div tags. This can also be applied to font awesome icons.

Essentially you need to modify the config.js file for the ckeditor to not remove those. You can find the config.js file in /CMS/CMSAdminControls/CKeditor/config.js

Once you've added the code, make sure to clear your cache in the site and within your browser to see the changes.

Thanks Brenden,

To help others with the similar issue with font awesome icons I'll post here the config changes I did.

CKEDITOR.dtd.$removeEmpty['i'] = false;

Basically the editor was thinking the font awesome icon code is an empty <i> tag and was stripping it.
