No short list of emoticons
By , for WP 4.2.1

The plugin would be perfect if there was a list of emoticons available, when I'm writing the article or page, to be included in the text with a mouse click. At the moment I have to write the emoticons on a sheet of paper to remember them...

Thanks!

Perfect!

Wow much better than anything I have used before. Looks a lot better in serious blogging might even use on business website as well... :)

Works, but...

If I use the "More" tag in a post (and I do), then the smileys above the tag do not work, but they all work below it! Thanks!

So much better than the default yellow circles

Instead of wasting time hunting down smilies that match my site's color scheme and theme, these "plaintext" smilies get the job done with a minimum of fuss. Since they're technically a font, you can use CSS to style them to match your site's color scheme very quickly, and if you're really enamored with the default smiley yellow ball style:

span[class*="icon-emo-"]
{
	padding: 3px;
	background-color: yellow;
	border: 1px solid black;
	border-radius: 50%;
}

This plug-in is a definite download.

Nice

Works like a charm

Neat plugin, works as described

What Sarah Gooding said before, plus: I’d love to see the plugin being updated with a small API, i.e. a filter to implement custom emoticon fonts. If the author is interested in/ open to collaboration, please leave a quick comment.

Just perfect!

All you have to do is activate it and see how those old-fashioned smilies turn into crisp and plain text-based smilies that adjust to your content's line-height and color, making for a much nice experience.

Better than the original

These emoticons actually make the articles more readable.

Simple and elegant

Great plugin! Works really well. Elegant replacement for colourful smileys that often don't match the text and content.
