      I’m trying to add a Font-Awsome icon to a button I added to tinyMCE thus:

      ed.addButton('youtube', {
      title: 'Add Video' ,
      icon: 'icon-youtube',
      onclick: function () {
      //do stuff here...

      using an image like the docs suggest was not acceptable but for some reason I am not able to make this work. any ideas?

      this CSS based solution seems to work nicely:

      i.mce-i-[FONT-AWESOME-CLASSNAME]:before {   // FONT-AWESOME-CLASSNAME e.g. "icon-youtube"
      content: "[FONT-AWESOME-CONTENT]"; // FONT-AWESOME-CONTENT e.g. "f166"
      font-family: FontAwesome;
      font-style: normal;
      font-weight: normal;
      text-decoration: inherit;
      color: #000;
      font-size: 1.5em;
      padding-right: 0.5em;
      position: absolute;
      top: 15%;
      left: 0;

      it is based on matt-royal’s answer on this stack exchange wordpress thread
