    How can you guys head-hunt for Bootstrap submissions but still not allow FontAwesome font files to be included with the themes? The two go hand-in-hand :)

    • David Bradley on the 26th September

      What, they don’t allow font awesome? Where can I read about that at?

    • ThemeBlvd on the 26th September

      You can read all about it here:

      http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/clarification-on-including-icon-fonts-in-themes/73312

      However, the problem is that while this has been addressed a couple of times publicly in the forums, basically they’ve been putting off any official clarification until they can figure this out. This has been going on about 40 days now that they’ve simply told reviewers to reject any themes that have font files, no matter what the circumstance.

      I also submitted a support ticket specifically asking about FontAwesome about 2 weeks ago now, in which they simply said “no”.

  2. Brad on the 26th September

    That is crazy! I would like to read that article too. I see other themes on Theme Forest have font awesome included…

  3. Wilson Muñoz on the 28th September

    Really nice, i may enter this, but ThemeBlvd is right, those two work together nicely

  4. Wilson Muñoz on the 28th September

    Never mind, it looks like we can use icons now :D

    • ThemeBlvd on the 28th September

      Did you see an update to this somewhere? To my knowledge, we’re still not allowed? Because if so, I’d really like to know :)

    • Matt on the 29th September

      @ThemeBlvd

      Jarel mentioned it here, and I got confirmation from Kailoon as well when I updated my WP theme.

      Not being allowed to use @font-face has caused so many headaches and was a support nightmare.
