I am trying to: Add a Font Awesome cart icon to the "Add to Cart" button in my view's content template.

I expected to see: The cart icon

Instead, I got:The Font Awesome code gets output as text instead of the icon.

I am using Font Awesome elsewhere on the site and it's working fine. When I try to put

<i class="fa fa-cart-plus" aria-hidden="true"></i>

in the button text, it just outputs the code as text instead of the icon. Can icons be added to WooCommerce add to cart button?


Dear rusty,

It is the HTML "i" tag does not work as expected inside the HTML "a" tag, so I suggest you use some JS codes to add CSS class "fa fa-cart-plus" into the "Add to Cart" button, for example:

jQuery('a.add_to_cart_button').addClass('fa fa-cart-plus');
jQuery('a.add_to_cart_button').attr('aria-hidden', 'true');<

More help:
hidden link


Thanks Luo. That indeed does add the icon, but it also resets the typestyle of the entire button which won't work. I think that at this time it's just not possible, unless you have another suggestion?


Please modify the JS codes as below, and test again:

jQuery('a.add_to_cart_button').prepend('<i class="fa fa-cart-plus" aria-hidden="true"></i> ');

Description: Insert content, specified by the parameter, to the beginning of each element in the set of matched elements.


That works very well. Thanks Luo!
