Just The Shortcodes, Please

Plenty of great WordPress plugins focus on providing or including the Font Awesome library into your site. Font Awesome Shortcodes for WordPress assumes you're working with a theme that already includes Font Awesome 4 and focuses on giving you a great set of shortcodes to use it with.

This plugin creates a simple, out of the way button just above the WordPress TinyMCE editor (next to the "Add Media" button) which pops up a handy icon-selector, and the plugin's documentation with shortcode examples for reference and handy "Insert Example" links to send the example shortcodes straight to the editor. There are no additional TinyMCE buttons to clutter up your screen, just great, easy to use shortcodes!

Updated for Font Awesome 4.2!

Now supporting all of the new icons and aliases added in Font Awesome 4.2.
