Description (last modified by ocean90)

Mac OS X Lion adds a new set of Unicode characters — Emoji. To access these characters, choose Edit > Special Characters… from the menu bar in Safari, then select "Emoji" in the left side of the Characters palette. Double click any Emoji to insert it into the selected text field in Wordpress.

Problem: The Wordpress editor very much does not like Emoji, and will strip any text following an Emoji character.

Reproduce: Type the following into the Post Editor…

Testing 💩 How Did It Go?

(The character after 'Testing' is an emoji character, or Unicode: U+1F4A9 UTF-8.)

Expected: That text and emoji appears in the final post.

Results: The post appears as follows...


Everything after the Emoji, including the Emoji, is omitted from the post, including any new lines.

(I should note that it would be fine for Emoji to be automatically encoded into HTML entities, except in the case of using an Emoji in a href url...)
