    The Enfold theme is supposed to be fully compatible with Chrome as well. If I look at my site in Chrome however, a lot of the standard icons within the Enfold theme are not being displayed at all, instead you see a small rectangle.

    More specifically, 6 out of the 10 standard icons I use at the homepage are being displayed as a rectangle in Chrome, instead of displaying the actual icons. This is very unfortunate, because the use of icons is a very prominent element of the Enfold theme visual design.
    Even more unfortunate: I use 6 out of the mentioned 10 standard icons on almost every other page as well (by using content snippet repetition). 3 out of those 6 are displayed incorrectly as a rectangle on just about every page, instead of displaying the selected icons. Therefor this bug has quite some impact on every web page displyed within Chrome.

    Can you please provide the necessary tips to fix this bug once and for all?
    Thanks in advance.


    Hey NieuweDag!

    Thank you for using the theme!

    First of all, you have a very old version of the theme, 2.2. Please download Enfold 2.9.1. This should fix the icon fonts issue. If not, please refer to this link: http://www.fontsquirrel.com/blog/2010/11/troubleshooting-font-face-problems

    The update might break some elements on the website. Please make it a habit to update the theme as much as possible.

    Best regards,


    The update did fix the problem with displaying icons as they should within Chrome. However, the update also made sure I have to manually readjust every modification I made earlier to the theme (15-20 changes, not all documented in detail), so this will cause a considerable amount of work to make things work as they should again.

    Please take this into account when you simply advise people to update the theme as much as possible. I would prefer not to update, unless absolutely necessary. Where you are talking about a very old version, it actually is not even close to 1 year old. I hope this issue will not force me to search for a more stable theme solution, because it simply won’t work for me to readjust every manual modification every few weeks. Hope you understand.


    The update fixed the icons-issue like I mentioned above, however, it did show a new issue regarding to Chrome.
    Where in Firefox and IE the logo is set and displayed in fixed size, and the header scrolls away with the rest of the page, in Chrome the menu stays on top and converts the logo into minimal size.

    I hope you can provide me the necessary tips to fix this issue, because at this point the update brings up far more issues than it was supposed to solve.



    Thank you for the info.

    I’m sorry about that. There are lots of changes since 2.2, fyi version 2.2 has been release September last year and there are lots of changes since then. One example is the new header builder on Enfold theme options and more. Please check the change log on Enfold Overview. Good thing you didn’t upgrade WordPress to 3.9 because it will surely break the theme but again version 2.7 of the theme fix this incompatibility issue. It is absolutely necessary that you update the theme frequently to fix minor bugs, get hold of new theme features, element improvements, browser fixes etc, unfortunately, you waited to long to do this.

    Regarding the modifications, please create a change log or use a child theme next time. I’m sorry but it is impossible for us to trace back the changes you’ve made on the theme. Like I said on my previous post, the update might break some elements on the theme.
