Works on both multisite networks and single sites.
Enabled by default
This plugin has been written for WordPress Multisite with a WordPress.com like environment in mind.
Because of this, we want to give users full functionality and awesomeness with the least configuration. If a user wishes to disable emojis for their site, they can simply do so in their dashboard.
This plugin also fixes incorrect Character Encoding on WordPress installations installed prior to 4.3.0 when emojis are disabled.
You can submit your own translations through the sidebar on this page.

- Fixed: New WordPress installations (4.3 and up) don't have the option to turn off smileys. This leads to incorrect character encoding of smiley abbrevations, like 🙂 and :D. Therefor the whole function to encode characters will be removed if emoji's are set to disabled.
- Fixed: Old WordPress installations with WordPress 4.3 and up will automatically set the smileys to off if Emoji support is disabled for the same reason as above. This only has effect after updating the page for the first time.
