Im not sure why the icons from FontAwesome are blank boxes

kind of hard to see, but there are blank boxes to the left of the words, but they are supposed to be icons from FontAwesome.


When you open font-awesome.min.css you can see following path:

'Fonts/fontawesome-webfont.ttf?v=4.2.0' ...

Meaning that you will have to create directory Fonts and then copy files fontawesome-webfont.ttf (fontawesome-webfont.woff, fontawesome-webfont.eot) to this folder. This will hopefully solve your problem.

Possibly in addition to what was already said, it does not look like you have a style sheet installed with the fontawesome icons. Have you followed the FontAwesome setup instructions: Get Started | Font Awesome Docs
