Allow FontAwesome version 6

Developers are limited to using version 5.14.0 and can't update themes to version 6.


Who: developers creating themes and marketers using themes

What/goal: ability to use the latest icon sets

Value: adds backwards compatibility


If the theme was created with 5.0.10 it is not possible to update to 5.14.0 because 5.14.0 is not downward compatible with 5.0.10.

Updating the icon_set would break the icons on existing website pages where 5.0.10 was used.


Fontawesome introduced downward compatibility with version 6, but since HubSpot doesn't allow version 6, it's not possible to update existing themes.


Editing to include that without this update, users can't select TikTok or the new Twitter X icons.

I would love to be able to use the new X-twitter logo, but I can't because it's part of the 6.4.2 release.


HubSpot - we need this!

The icon field now supports v6.4.2 which works for all new themes or custom themes but doesn't include backwards compatibility which limits the ability for existing marketplace themes to update easily.

@Jnix284 Is right. I was exited when I saw 6.4.2 was added. But I can't acutally update it in my modules


Even getting an issue from Chevron Left, which wasn't even renamed. Looks like the 'name' is differenct 




For reference:


@hubspot is there an ETA on this?

I was directed here because the Twitter icon in the social module of Email DnD is incorrect. When can we expect an update? We already have almost 50 or 100 templates that include this module setting, it would be quite a hassle to update each one of them.


We've been having a frustrating time trying to get FontAwesome Pro 6.4.2 icons installed (specific icons to our industry which are missing from the icon's library). It's disheartening to see it's a compatability issue. Hope this is resolved quickly!
