Social Badges Stack | Tic Tok

Hello - I wish to announce a newly launched Tik Tok Account but I can’t find the Tic Tok icon in the Social Badges stack in Foundry. Obviously I’m searching alphabetically. Just wondering if I need to upgrade or I’m missing something ? Kind Regards | Justin

Hi @DinkyPixel – I just had this same request recently from someone else. Unfortunately I can’t help here. Stacks uses the FontAwesome v4.7 library for icons, including the ones found in the Social Badges stack. This means in using that library we’re limited in what it contains. If you search here on the FA v4.7 icon offerings you’ll find that Tik Tok is not an option, and thus isn’t an option in the Social Badges stack either.

Hi @elixirgraphics . And thanks for replying so quickly. You will forgive me if this a stupid question, but is there a reason why this Foundry social stack isn’t able to support version 5.15.4 of font awesome. A version which I believe does contain support for TicTok and other emerging social media platforms ? Thanks. Justin

Foundry v2 uses the Stacks APIto load FontAwesome. Stacks does not provide v5+, it only gives access to v4. Loading v5 separately from the Stacks API could cause multiple versions of FontAwesome to be loaded if third-party stacks are loading via the API.

So am I right in thinking @elixirgraphics that for us to be in a position to use v5 of Font Awesome, this needs to come from @Isaiah over at YourHead software ?

Not necessarily. To be play nicely within the API and help prevent double loading of FA though that would be best.

Believe it or not it isn’t an easy thing to deal with on YourHead’s side of things though as I understand it as it presents a problem with pages that might load stacks that are requesting different versions of FontAwesome. It is something to be looked at in a major update.
