To use the social media icons in the frontend, you have to include Font Awesome. Since Shariff v3 only Font Awesome v5 is supported. So just add the CSS <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.3.1/css/all.css" integrity="sha384-mzrmE5qonljUremFsqc01SB46JvROS7bZs3IO2EmfFsd15uHvIt+Y8vEf7N7fWAU" crossorigin="anonymous"> to your layout. You also have to include jQuery.


Add via Contao-Manager or run the composer command from the CLI inside your Contao root directory: composer require hofff/contao-shariff (requires composer to be installed globally)
