WordPress comes with a built-in replacement function that turns 🙂 etc. into emojis. If you need to switch this off, simply install and activate this plugin. It’s that simple.
- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/really-disable-emojisdirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress.
- Done! All automatic replacements of emojis is now disabled.

Ich liebe dieses Plugin. Es verhindert zuverlässig die unkontrollierbaren gelbe Klekse in meiner Webseite und bringt die unaufdringlichen Emojis der ersten Generation wieder zurück 😉 - selbst auf Tablets und Smartphones.

Does not work as suggested. Will have to try a code-based option.
