I HATE THE STUPID EMJOIS included with WordPress 4.2. HATE. Then I find out the very thing I’m disliking is a security vulnerability. So for now, I’m disabling comments.
Yes, they just released a fix, but I’m still mad about the stupid emojis and I can’t figure out how to get rid of them. Even now, they’re staring at me in the below pane.
Grrr. Not cool, WordPress. Not cool.
Update: 4.2.1 is out which supposedly fixes the issue. I’m going to give it time. There’s also a plugin to disable the emojis, but I’m still seeing them below.
Final Update: Rather the the disable emoji plugin, use Classic Smilies. It corrects all the crap emoji inserts with 4.2.
Comments going back on!
