Disable Emojis

Description

This plugin disables the new WordPress emoji functionality.

Note: Emoticons will still work and emoji’s will still work in browsers which have built in support for them. This plugin simply removes the extra code bloat used to add support for emoji’s in older browswers.

Installation

After you’ve downloaded and extracted the files:

  1. Upload the complete ‘disable-emojis’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory OR install via the plugin installer
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. And yer done!

Visit the Disable Emojis plugin for more information.

Reviews

Does the job.

I don’t know why this featured was introduced to WordPress. This is yet another plugin that I have to use for all my sites to clean up the code and improve performance.

This is a great plugin

Right after installation, I tested my websites on google page insights, gtmetix and pingdom. The performance improvement done by this easy-to-install plugin is obvious.

Works fine

I am pleased with the functionality of the plugin. Very pleased. Thank you.
