Gitmoji is an emoji guide for GitHub commit messages. Aims to be a standarization cheatsheet – guide for using emojis on GitHub’s commit messages.

Using emojis on commit messages provides an easy way of identifying the purpose or intention of a commit with only looking at the emojis used. As there are a lot of different emojis I found the need of creating a guide that can help to use emojis easier.

Disabling WordPress Smilies & Emoji

Call me old, or whatever, but personally, I think smilies and emoji in WordPress should be enabled by plugins or themes, they should not form part of the WP core system. There, I’ve said it.

Anyhow, when attempting to disable the emoji in my theme, I came across an issue whereby the option to disable the conversion of :) to images was missing in the WP admin area. The problem was, I didn’t know it was missing, so when I tried to implement this, I was still seeing emoji in my posts and comments. Annoying.

To workaround the issue, I’ve added a function to the ‘after_switch_theme‘ action that sets the ‘use_smilies’ option to false. Voila, no more smiles :)
