I don't see any elements in your code with a class "input-group-addon". You need to add that element to your HTML for this code to work. Either that, or use a different class name to select the element.

You should use the class selector instead of the attribute selector, otherwise it will only select elements that have exactly that class name and nothing more. The class selector is the same as in CSS:


jQuery is not necessary for this. It can be done with plain Javascript:

var header = '<span class="form-group row"><i class="fa fa-user"></i></span>';
var element = document.querySelector(".input-group-addon");
element.innerHTML = header + element.innerHTML;
