Getting Started








UNA uses FontAwesome icons.
As of 9.0.0-RC9 FontAwesome 5 is supported.
In general the same as in FontAwesome rules of icons naming are applied in UNA.
It's possible to use icons with fa- prefix and without it, by default fa- prefix isn't used.

UNA uses the following classes to separate icons into several categories:

  • fas - solid icons, this is default icons style and this class can be omitted
  • far - regular icons
  • fab - brands icons
  • fal - light icons, only available when FontAwesome Pro module is installed
  • fad - duotone icons, only available when FontAwesome Pro module is installed

Icon colors

UNA has some predefined classes for colours so it's possible to change icon colour just by specifying colour class, for example:

globe-asia col-green-3

List of available colour classes

Using icons in Studio

Icons can be used in different places, most notable in Studio > Navigation to set icons for different menus.
To set icon just specify icon name (colour name can be added as well) in icon field for the menu item:

far globe-asia 


far fa-globe-asia

Using icons in HTML

If you want to use icons in raw HTML then use sys-icon class, like this:

<i class="sys-icon far globe-asia col-blue3">

Using light or duotone icons everywhere

FontAwesome Pro module has setting to change all icons on the site to light or duotone style.
Just go to FontAwesome Pro module setting then change one setting, in some cases cache clearing is required (via Studio > Dashboard > Cache > Clear CSS cache)

Changing colors for duotone icons

To change colors for duotone icons system wide add something like this to your mix custom styles field:

:root {
  --fa-primary-color: green;
  --fa-primary-opacity: 1.0;
  --fa-secondary-color: red;
  --fa-secondary-opacity: 1.0;
