Description

With the addition of the new emojis, I wasn't initially clear how to add them, what keyboard shortcuts translated to smilies, etc. Therefore, I think a short new section of the TinyMCE help modal devoted to this might be in order. The WordPress.com page on the subject is probably a good starting point: https://en.support.wordpress.com/smilies/

  • Component changed from TinyMCE to Help/About
  • Keywords close added
  • Summary changed from Add Emoji Help Information to TinyMCE wp_help button? to Add Emoji Help Information to editor help tabs

If we end up adding help content for emoji – which I'm not convinced we should – it would need to go in the edit.php/post-new.php help tabs as emoji can be used in both editors (among other places).

Implementing emoji crosses kind of an interesting line in that we aren't giving users the tools to add emoji, just making it possible to display it. So I'm a little wary of creating help content in the admin backend for a mechanism that doesn't exist within WordPress itself. I'm tempted to recommend a Codex page more than admin help.

I agree with the above.

Good point.

Makes sense to me.

Agree with DrewAPicture as well. Codex page is the best option.
