Font Awesome Icons Not Loading

I am really stuck, I’ve tried troubleshooting why FontAwesome won’t load but I have no idea. I’m using a personal kit which is set to V6 of FontAwesome.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" crossorigin="anonymous">

Which is by the way nested in my <head> element.

I only want to use brand icons all of which should be free to my understanding, for example I put this within my body element with no luck:

<i class="fa-brands fa-square-facebook"></i>

I’m getting CORS blocked (on Codepen) when using the CSS file they link to. Try using the JS file instead.

<script src="" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

Or just use a CDN link for the CSS file instead.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="">

Hey, thanks a bunch for this!! Was changing ALL the http:// on my (cough) Tumblr theme to https:// due to it coming up as a security concern, and I’d narrowed it down to the kit being js and not having anything to fix, but I couldn’t figure out a way to get it to link to an https-using address. This fixed it completely.

SUCCESS! Joined here just to say thanks. Well, and because I’m sure I will actually use this site, of course, but it was a great prompt to do so.

(It’s weird, though, the kits say you’re able to use CSS, but they don’t give you an option to direct to a CSS file. They’re hosting, they should be able to provide you with the host address.)
