You forgot to include bootstrap.min.css file to use Glyph icons you need this.
<link href="css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

Hello Zolf,
you are not referencing the Bootstrap correctly...

in your HEAD the code should look like below near the line where you added the CSS style - means add the bootstrap.min.css before your style.

   
<link href="css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <link href="css/site.css" rel="stylesheet" />

Open in new window


then at the end of document... before the </body>  tag, you code should look like this:

<!-- jQuery for Bootstrap -->
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.12.4/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

Open in new window


after making these changes you will start seeing the Glyphicons in your page.

Thanks,
Prasadh

in above code I have referenced the Jquery from CDN, you can reference it from your local JS folder also.
