💬 Custom Emojis

Replied to a post by an author
:synth: !!! working on adding custom emoji to my wordpress site… if I type `:synth:` it should be converted into a little image of a synthesizer, like this: :synth: (hopefully it works). What happens if this also gets posted to my Pleroma instance?
This is something that I would love to add to my site. Instead of pasting in the emoji I could write :thump_up: and it would translate. In part I have never really had the time to dig in. Did you add something to your child theme?

  1. I made a few changes to my WordPress installation’s files, most according to a tutorial whose link I have misplaced, but this one is basically what I did: https://www.mustbeweb.com/how-to-add-custom-emoticons-in-wordpress/
    I added some of the same emoji to my Pleroma installation, and discovered that when I post here on my blog and it is syndicated to Pleroma, Pleroma parses the emoji shortcodes and converts to emojis there too. Cool!
