Support » Plugin: Custom Twitter Feeds » Emoji Support

  • Hello, I’ve been using this plugin for awhile now, in previous versions it always supported the Emoji icons, but in the most recent update I noticed some were displaying as box symbols. Any easy fix for this or am I on my own? Please let me know, great plugin! 🙂

    Hey zynk,

    I’m glad you like the plugin! Can you send a link to the page you’re having trouble with? When you said that previous versions didn’t have this issue, which version did you upgrade from?


    – Craig

    It was the last version, so the version that was out ~2 weeks ago. After reading your response I began to test this on multiple computers/browsers and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s font-related and tied to the computer itself, my mistake. Please disregard this post. Thank you so much for the awesome plugin and for your support!

    No problem zynk!

    If I can ask, what was the problem specifically? It might help others if you’re able to share it.

    Otherwise let me know if you need anything else!

    Hi, I found this post by looking for exactly the same thing: support for emojis.
    – Site:
    – CTF Version: Pro
    – Tried: Hitting “activate” again on License tab; Cleared Persistent Cache

    REPRO: If you look at the link (scroll to the bottom of page where CTF displays), you’ll see a bunch of weird characters in my tweets. These chars should be emojis – they show up just fine on Twitter, but apparently CTF can’t render them.

    Hopefully this is an easy fix – my tweets look kinda weird right now 🙂

    Hey aradia12,

    Sorry about the issue here! It looks like this is coming from a “Twitter Card”. These can be tricky but we can help you out I believe. Since this is for the “Pro” version, can you contact us on our website?



    Hey Craig, thanks for the quick reply! Should’ve mentioned I also *love* your plugin 🙂 And will contact you via your site now. Cheers!

    NO WAIT! It’s FIXED!!! I just hit refresh on my site and all emojis are rendering properly – thank you for that super quick magic!!
