I can see your icons just fine. You might want to clear your cache and reload.

  • I have purged the CDN Cache as well as W3tc Cache in Wordpress , but still the problem persists. can you guide me to the next steps.


  • What about your computer’s cache did you clear it?

  • I have deleted the System Cache as well. Still the same. But it shows icons properly on mobile phones. i even checked with the other computers. It is the same issue here. When i contacted Maxcdn they said that the .htaccess file is not showing the headers with the CORS Rule.

Ok, lets try this.

Add this code to your htaccess file adn let me know if it works

<FilesMatch ".(ttf|otf|eot|woff)$">
<IfModule mod_headers.c>
Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"
