Hi friends,

I have created a project in using vb and deployed on UAT. Where in this project consists of css stylesheets containing font-awesome icons but theses font-awesome icons do not appear on UAT deployment. Why do this happen? Please suggest the solution

Are you sure all file paths are correct?

<link href="font-awesome/css/font-awesome.css" rel="stylesheet" />

Above mentionedlink I have used to give a path to font-awesome css.

and the contents of that path have been copied to UAT?

Yes even contents are passed.

try href="../font-awesome/css/font-awesome.css"
Also try "../../font-awesome/css/font-awesome.css"

As well as checking the file paths for the stylesheet and the font files, you'll also need to check the MIME type mapping. IIS doesn't include MIME types for web fonts by default.

This is the web.config file I'm currently using for a fonts directory:
            <mimeMap fileExtension="eot" mimeType="application/" />
            <mimeMap fileExtension="otf" mimeType="application/x-font-opentype" />
            <mimeMap fileExtension="svg" mimeType="image/svg+xml" />
            <mimeMap fileExtension="ttf" mimeType="application/x-font-truetype" />
            <mimeMap fileExtension="woff" mimeType="application/font-woff" />
            <mimeMap fileExtension="woff2" mimeType="application/font-woff2" />
