    Hi Jessica,
    Thank you.

    I have checked it now. I am publishing another update by Saturday that will resolve it.
    yes, It is a plugin compatibility issue. The problem is we are using a custom nav walker and the nav icon plugin is injecting their icon in our right floated icon class.

    Is this the plugin in question?

    Please let me know and I will publish an update by Saturday or early.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Are you able to take a look at the fix for this when using a menu in the left panel? The Font Awesome icon is pushed to the right and when you expand the menu, it rotates the icon on it’s side. You can see it here: http://tinyurl.com/yyr4tp6l (I have the left panel set to only display on small screens, so you will need to reduce window size to see.)

    Hi Jessica,
    Thank you for the reply.

    I don’t see a workaround without modifying code.

    The plugin is filtering on ‘walker_nav_menu_start_el’ and using regular expression to inject the font awesome markup.

    The problem is our custom nav walker for the panel menus return custom links(containing font awesome markup itself).

    That makes the plugins regular expression go wrong.

    The only solution I see is modifying the cb-nav-walker.php and removing our code for adding icon.

    You will need to comment line 139 from

    
    $item_output .= $fa_item;
    

    to

    
    
    //$item_output .= $fa_item;
    
    

    and also modify line 142 from

    
    $item_output .= ( $args->has_children && 0 === $depth ) ? ' <i class="fa fa-angle-left pull-right"></i></a>' : '</a>';
    

    to

    
    $item_output .= '</a>';
    

    That will make it work.

    Regards
    Brajesh
