Welcome to our forum.
Added new option to alter font awesome version from settings in free version to see the result, please see the screenshot.
Some people still using older version of font awesome and themes also. that’s why i can’t remove older version of font awesome support.
I will add this option to pro version soon.
But i am bit confused should i remove the hardcode “fa” or load “fa” conditionally when choosing older version font awesome from settings.
