Use of font awesome or other icons in buttons?

Hi, Reading through several forum posts it seems strangely hard to use other icons than glyphicons in buttons. Did I miss something or is this the case? If it is fact hard, why? It seems like a very obvious thing to me! Thanks for you input. // :) Fredrik

Hi Fredrik,

No it's actually very easy, you can add a lot more images as following:

Add an image collection in you project by "Add", "Page resources", "Image collection". In this collection you import the images you want to use. Second you go to the button, select "image" instead of glyphicon and you can select your new imported image there.

There are more ways to achieve custom images through theming and css. But this is the easiest way.
