Just tested this on my staging site. Emojis are all still there. Double-checked here to confirm nothing else was required after activation to remove emojis. Sad. This code works if you add it to the end of your Functions.php file: // Disable emojis in WordPress function disable_emoji_feature() { // Prevent Emoji from loading on the front-end remove_action('wp_head', 'print_emoji_detection_script', 7); remove_action('wp_print_styles', 'print_emoji_styles'); // Remove from admin area also remove_action('admin_print_scripts', 'print_emoji_detection_script'); remove_action('admin_print_styles', 'print_emoji_styles'); // Remove from RSS feeds also remove_filter('the_content_feed', 'wp_staticize_emoji'); remove_filter('comment_text_rss', 'wp_staticize_emoji'); // Remove from Embeds remove_filter('embed_head', 'print_emoji_detection_script'); // Remove from emails remove_filter('wp_mail', 'wp_staticize_emoji_for_email'); // Disable from TinyMCE editor. Currently disabled in block editor by default add_filter('tiny_mce_plugins', 'disable_emojis_tinymce'); /** Finally, prevent character conversion too ** without this, emojis still work ** if it is available on the user's device */ add_filter('option_use_smilies', '__return_false'); } // Disables emojis in WYSIWYG editor function disable_emojis_tinymce($plugins) { if (is_array($plugins)) { $plugins = array_diff($plugins, array('wpemoji')); } return $plugins; } add_action('init', 'disable_emoji_feature'); }
