If you’re running the latest version of Avada 7.11.5 and still do not see the latest X icon then its correct behavior. The icon is only changed for areas which are prebuilt like social sharing setup of Avada. However the social icons selector in Avada is using Font Awesome 5 and not the latest version of Font Awesome. So its expected result. Now you must be wondering, how to get this sorted. Its quite easy to update the icon to the new X icon. I am attaching a downloadable ZIP file that can be installed as a custom icon in Avada and then you can pick it as a social icon. Let’s follow the process below;

Step 1: Download the file.

So first things first, download the ZIP file from here -> New X Icon

Step 2: Create the New Icon set.

Log in to your WordPress Dashboard and navigate to the Dashboard > Avada > Icons section and Enter Icon Set Name as X Icon and hit Create New Icon Set button.

Avada Icons

You’ll be redirected to another screen once Create New Icon Set is clicked, there you’ll upload the ZIP file and hit update. Now your new Avada X Icon is ready.

Step 3: Selecting the New X Icon

Next, navigate to Dashboard > Avada > Options -> Social Media -> Social Media Icons and click on the “X Icon” tab. Here, you’ll find your new X icon that you can select and use in your website. Once you’ve located the X icon, simply click on it to select it.

Step 4: Save changes.

After selecting the X icon for the Twitter icon, don’t forget to save your changes. Click on the “Save Changes” button to apply the update.

Once saved, navigate to your website and refresh the page to see the changes in action. Voila! Your Twitter icon has now been replaced with the new X icon.
