Una la las news of WordPress 4.2 more controversial, interestingly, it has been the incorporation of support for Emojis in addition to native Unicode characters in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, mathematical and musical symbols, and hieroglyphic symbols.
It's worth many of us who do not use the Han character set to write in Chinese , nor block in Japanese or Korean but who does not use the Emojis daily on their mobile?
I use them, and a lot. In addition, I think we will all agree that we must promote the mobile use of WordPress although it seems to me that this support could have been incorporated in a more transparent way, or at least have offered some option where activate it or not why?
<style type = "text / css">
display : inline ! Important ;
border : none ! Important ;
box-shadow : none ! Important ;
height : 1em ! Import
width : 1em ! important ;
margin ]: 0 .07em ! Important ;
vertical-align : -0.1em ! Important ;
background : none ! Important ;
padding : 0 ! Important ;
Total nothing, huh?
If you're from those who prefer save a few seconds of loading your Web or simply if you are clear that you do not want to offer the Emojis you can remove this novelty in a couple of ways.
Deactivate Emojis support with code
Just add the following code to the file
functions.php of your theme or your utilities plugin for disable Emojis support .
// Disable Emojis support
remove_action ( 'wp_head' 'print_emoji_detection_script' 7 ) ;
remove_action ( 'wp_print_styles' 'print_emoji_styles' ) ; Y if you also want to remove the styles then the lines to add would be these:
Disable Emojis support with plugin
If you prefer to pull plugins you can install and activate the so-called Classic Smiles that deactivates Emojis support and, as an extra, returns the usual emoticons to your site
