This plugin is 100% compatible with both the Visual Builder and standard Divi Builder as of version 1.5 of the plugin. Access almost 2000 icons from Font Awesome and the Material Icon set, natively in the Divi Builder UI.
NOTICE: When updating to version 2.0 you will likely have to reset your icons. There was a slight inconsistency in the first edition’s Material icons where a few icons were omitted and one or two were duplicated. This has been corrected in the new version but based on the way Divi handles icons, your icons likely will have switched places. Please double check your icons on live sites after upgrading.
Divi Icon King gives you access to almost 2000 Font Awesome and Material Icons directly in the Divi Builder, so you can easily apply them natively to blurbs, buttons, galleries, right from the Divi Builder.
With all of those new icons, it’s going to be a lot to sort though to find the find the one icon you’re looking for – that’s why I’ve built custom filters AND a search box so you can quickly find the perfect icon for your element.
Most other icon plugins are great about helping you to load libraries like Font Awesome on your website, but actually using the icons involved writing custom CSS for each icon you wanted to use.
And if a client wanted to change an icon? That was a whole ordeal.
This plugin IS compatible with both the Divi and Extra themes and both the Visual Builder and standard Divi Builder.
If you purchase this plugin and find it’s conflicting with another plugin, definitely let me know about it and I’ll do my best to make the plugins compatible. I want Divi Icon King to play nice with as many 3rd party Divi plugins as possible. We’re all in this together!
This plugin was built without creating any custom modules that would need to be maintained, meaning it’s compatible with all of the core Divi modules that let you choose an icon for something.
It also means there is less potential for conflict and hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if it even worked with 3rd party plugins, providing they follow Divi’s coding practices.
The good thing about this plugin is that it really works instantly with every Divi or 3rd party module and it’s cool to have so many more icons to choose from. But it’s only usable when you don’t plan to show the icons plainly without animation. If you do this it looks for a split second like this: https://imgur.com/0FLikCw
You see for a short period a jumble of icons before your icon is visible. When it’s long enought visible to make a screenshot – this is also long enough to be perceivable for the visitors. What would the people think about a website where something like this happens? It’s only OK when you use a transition animation – then it doesen’t matter. This is clearly a hack. While I understand that this is the only viable option to do this as long you don’t want to use shortcuts – this could be a cleaner solution. Even the inbuilt divi icons are affected by this side effect. And a developer has some options to hide this ugly effect. Using a blank font as placeholder, using vanilla JS instead of jQuery to hide it faster or even to hide all icons via css (all are affected so it’s alright to do so). So this plugin can and should be improved.
I also needed this plugin for a multisite (with 4 subdomains) and can’t find anything about the topic to look up if the license covers this use-case. Will it stop working and throw errors? I don’t know. So I’m not even sure if I can use this plugin at all.
Hey Mark, sorry just now seeing this comment. The multiple icon issue was fixed a few weeks after your post (I can’t remember which version it was off the top of my head) and this only seemed to occur on some hosting platforms.
As of somewhere around version 2.0 you shouldn’t experience this issue any longer. If you’re using version 2+ and you’re experiencing it let me know and I’d be happy to take a look!
Again, sorry for the delay in my response – there isn’t any type of comment notification for authors.
Hey thanks for the awesome review, it’s much appreciated! Just made my day!
Great plugin, even better support!

I foolishly didn’t go through the documentation and didn’t realize I simply had to activate the icons. Alex responded immediately to my support request and got the plugin working. Great product, even better developer. Thanks!
Hey Rose, thanks for the comment – sorry I’m just now seeing this. The latest version of the plugin has been updated to reflect the many, many changes Elegant Themes has made to the Visual Builder in a very short amount of time.
The reason there is the line that the plugin isn’t 100% compatible with the Visual Builder is because the filter option is disabled in the Visual Builder. All other icon selection features should work fine.
If your individual experience is different, please feel free to email me on my support page (http://alexbrinkman.org/product-support/) and I can take a look at your individual setup to try and troubleshoot this issue for you.
I appreciate you purchasing the plugin and supporting it’s development.
