with the new WordPress update to 4.2 the classic emoticons are gone and emoji take there place.
With WordPress 4.2 you’ll see no longer our beauties like or at first I was confused because the old emoticons are still into the installation path.
I checked several times the directory wp-includes/images/smilies I see the old beauties, but I also notice some new .png files in this directory. But there was only 4 new files in this directory and the other 18 files I can’t find them.
At my site I only saw different sorts of emoji now. Some of them in Apple style like the wink other ones like the smile in WordPress style.
Holy shit this looks so ugly! If they would have same style, I would say ok this is not what I want, but they decided for a update to emoji. But take something from here and use something from there and put this all together. Sorry this was a big fault in my eyes.
