You’re going to add a thumbs-up icon in the Like button. Here’s how you add one:

<i class="fa fa-thumbs-up"></i>

@kevcomedia @prasoon

I was able to pass the challenge but at least on the small simulator, the text got cut cause it does seem to take into account the icon when calculating the button width.

Do you have any idea why this is happening and how to avoid it?

Thanks all!

I think it’s just that the button’s content is too much for such a small button. One way to avoid it is to use button groups instead of using bootstrap rows (because the rows have some fixed amount of padding between columns, leaving little space for the buttons).

Thanks @kevcomedia, plus on a bigger screen it works better. I’ll look into the button groups.
