This mod enables the use of Font Awesome icons in posts and other places where BBCode is enabled.

Current version: 1.0.1
Current version of FA: 4.5.0

An icon is inserted by using [fa]<icon name>[/fa], where <icon name> is the name of the icon, without the "fa-" prefix. A complete list of icons can be found on the official Font Awesome website.

Example: [fa]trophy[/fa]
This adds the trophy icon to the post on that position.

Font Awesome also supports spinner icons, rotating and flipping of icons, and equal-width icons. These can be passed to the [fa][/fa] tags by using [fa=<option>]<icon name>[/fa].

Example: [fa=spin]spinner[/fa]
This adds the spinner icon and makes it turn clockwise.

Options are:
"spin" (which makes the icon spin),
"pulse" (makes the icon spin in 8 steps),
"rotate-90", "rotate-180", "rotate-270" (turns the icon that many degrees),
"flip-horizontal", "flip-vertical" (to flip the icon along those axes) and
"fw" (which sets the width of an icon to a constant value, to align icons with different widths).

It is not possible to combine multiple options, although this usually is not necessary.

Because the options "spin" and "pulse" can annoy people if used abundantly by users, an option is added to the Admin area to enable or disable them (disabled by default). It is to admins of a forum if they enable them, and enforce fair use to them.

The Future
It is planned that the mod detects new versions of Font Awesome by itself, that there can be an option for which version to use, or both.

This mod uses the MIT License, which means that you can do whatever with it, but you need to keep my name within it if you redistribute it, and I can't be sued for losses that would somehow occur.
