Disable Emoji optimization
The Disable Emoji feature disables the emoji functionality to reduce the extra HTTP request linked to the emojis script,
wp-includes/js/wp-emoji-release.min.js, that was introduced in WordPress 4.2.
With this, the emoticons such as
:) are not converted into emojis such as 🙂.
However, most browsers are already converting emoticons to emojis. Therefore, in most cases you'll still see emojis on your website.
Note: this feature is automatically enabled upon WP Rocket activation
To revert this optimization and use the Emoji file from WordPress.org instead of the default Emoji from visitor's browser, install the helper plugin below.
- Download the helper plugin zip file
- Install the helper plugin on your site - go to Plugins → Add New → Upload plugin and select the zip file.
- Activate the plugin
- Clear the WP Rocket cache
