How Does WordPress Handle Smileys?

By default, WordPress automatically converts text smileys to graphic images. When you type πŸ˜‰ in your post you see smile emoticon when you preview or publish your post.

To Turn off Graphic Smileys

If you turn off graphic smileys, whatever you type in plain text will remain, and be displayed, as plain text.

  1. Go to your Admin Panel
  2. Select Settings -> Writing
  3. In the Formatting section, uncheck the box for “Convert emoticons likeΒ πŸ™‚ andΒ πŸ˜› to graphics on display

Turning off emoticons means that when you type πŸ˜‰ in a post you will see πŸ˜‰ when you preview or publish your post. So it doesn’t stop you from using emoticons as plain text. wink emoticon
