Font Awesome and Moodle, Part 14 – Bootstrap

In part fourteen of this series we consider using Font Awesome as part of Bootstrap.

Font Awesome works really well with the full range of Bootstrap components. Consider these examples:

<a class="btn btn-danger" href="#">
  <i class="fa fa-trash-o fa-lg"></i> Delete</a>
<a class="btn btn-default btn-sm" href="#">
  <i class="fa fa-cog"></i> Settings</a>

As you can probably work out by now, this produces the following buttons.

Cool eh?

Of course, being a Moodle teacher or designer you might use something more like:

<a class="btn btn-lg btn-success" href="#">
  <i class="fa fa-info fa-2x pull-left" style="color:#800000"></i> Learner support area</a>

This produces a button like this:

Note the href=”#” part of the code.

You can replace the # with any URL – such as https://wwwyoursite.com/learner_support

The link could be internal – to a page on your Moodle site, or external – to your main company website, or any other website address.

So now you know how to add simple buttons that link to different parts of your course or site 🙂

More next month!
