This is big guys. The new update to WordPress (4.2) has landed and it supports emoji!
Before this update, if you used an emoji in a post, WordPress would either fail to save it or even lose the text you wrote. Well, not anymore. The newest update allows you to use emoji anywhere. And yes, that even includes the URL slug!
Incredible right? ??????
However, there’s still something of a catch. If your readers don’t have the latest version of their browser, adding an emoji to the title may have unintended results. So, there is that to take into consideration.
