    Font Awesome Icons only show up when hotlinking to CDN

    I'm trying to use some Font Awesome Icons in my navbar, and I just want some down arrow icons next to each list item. When I hotlink to their stylesheet, it works fine. I'd rather not do that, but whenever I try to keep everything on the server my site is on, I just get the little icon boxes. I'm pretty sure all my paths are correct, maybe I've just been looking at this too long, and I'm missing something really simple.

    Any help is appreciated!

    Your paths appear to be correct but my debugger’s Net panel shows an error 500 (internal server error) on the font files. And if I load, for example, http://builderpreviews22.com/font-aw...t.woff?v=4.0.3 directly it should pop up a download prompt but it doesn’t.

    It’s impossible to tell what’s wrong but this article might help a little. You should check your server’s error log, it may have more info. And you should probably contact the hosting company, because it’s an issue on their servers. Perhaps your server is set up to somehow prevent font files from being served?

    Thanks for the help! I think there's something screwy going on with the server. I just needed another pair of eyes to confirm!
