For the full template of CKE-Editor

RTE.default.preset = fullFA4

Add Fotawesome in your own RTE Preset

To add this Plug-In in your own RTE Config. Import the Config in your preset.

    - { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor_fontawesome/Configuration/RTE/PluginFA5.yaml" }

At the next step you need to extend your individual Toolbar-Config to add the Clickable Icon.

        - [ 'Bold', 'Italic', .....]
        - [ 'ckeditor_fa5' ]

Use Fontawesome Pro, or Custom Config:

first create the file /fileadmin/rte_ckeditor_fontawesome/FA5Pro.yaml. Copy the content from below and replace your fontawesome pro link.

Update YAML

  - { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Full.yaml" }
  - { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor_fontawesome/Configuration/RTE/PluginFA5Pro.yaml" }
# Add configuration for the editor

Add to your TSConfig:

// Zuweisen der Konfiguration im PageTSconfig
RTE.default.preset = fa5pro

Add to your constant or clear this:

# Include Fontawesome 5-Pro CSS
plugin.tx_ckeditor_fontawesome.css = "LINK TO FONTAWESOME PRO"

Fontawesome 6 Pro

Usually you have a RTE config in your sitepackage, if not create a new file.

  • add PluginFA6Pro.yaml to imports
  • add fontAwesome URL or path to CSS
  • if icons are still missing: check webfonts path in the css and change if necessary
- { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Processing.yaml" }
- { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Editor/Base.yaml" }
- { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor/Configuration/RTE/Editor/Plugins.yaml" }
- { resource: "EXT:rte_ckeditor_fontawesome/Configuration/RTE/PluginFA6Pro.yaml" }

      - "EXT:sitepackage/Resources/Public/Fonts/Css/fa6pro-all.css"

TCA Selector for Fontawesome Icons

You can use the Fontawesome SVG folder as source for a TCA Select field. Change "fileFolder" to the path where your SVGs are located:

'icon'  => [
    'exclude' => 1,
    'label'   => 'Icon',
    'config'  => [
        'type'                  => 'select',
        'renderType'            => 'selectMultipleSideBySide',
        'fileFolder'            => 'EXT:sitepackage/Resources/Public/Icons/Fontawesome/',
        'fileFolder_extList'    => 'svg',
        'fileFolder_recursions' => 0,
        'size'                  => 5,
        'minitems'              => 0,
        'maxitems'              => 1,

With npm installation, the SVGs are located in node_modules/@fortawesome/fontawesome-pro/svgs/light
