Under the Misc. Options inside Customizer you will find a toggle switch for Font Awesome. This will automatically enqueue the Font Awesome CDN (currently v 4.3.0). This opens their entire collection of icons for you to use in your navigation menus (learn how) and also makes available a special shortcode that allows you to use any Font Awesome Icon in your content.

Below are some examples of the available shortcode “swatcher_fa.” You can set the “container” attribute if you want to wrap the icon element in something other than “<i> .” If no container is set it will default to “<i>.”

You can also wrap any shortcode in something like an <h1> tag to make it big and pretty. You can also add your own classes to the string between the shortcode.
