How to use emoji in WordPress

Emoji are “smiley” images (or ideograms) seen all over the Internet. They’re commonly used to convey emotion or clarify a subtle meaning behind text and can be used on a wide range of devices.

Emoji can be inserted into your WordPress posts and pages with ease. However, as they are managed by the operating system, rather than applications like WordPress, the steps to insert emoji can vary by device.
