How to Disable Emojis in WordPress

Emojis are fun and all, but if you are aren’t using them they actually load a JavaScript file (wp-emoji-release.min.js) on every page of your website. For a lot of businesses, this is not needed and simply adds load time to your site. So we recommend disabling this.


In the perfmatters plugin simply enable the “Disable Emojis” option.
