Really Disable Emojis


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.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/really-disable-emojis directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‚Plugins‘ screen in WordPress.
  3. Done! All automatic replacements of emojis is now disabled.

Claim: Disables the automatic emojis (smilies) replacement function. Really! Result: Emojis are disabled. Not replaced. Every external source, e.g. a twitter feed, now has NO emojis and just looks terrible. We need a replacement for the data harvesting machine from automattic.

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.

thank you for stripping back my smilies to their original typigraphical beauties 🙂

That's exactly what I've been looking for to keep smileys as standard text and prevent changing it into emoji. Thank you!
