Using emojis
 

Hello all...

We are triying to use emojis in our Moodle 3.3+ (build 20170525). When using an Android phone or tablet, we can see the emojis as expected. But in web mode (browsers firefox and chrome), we see like ASCII mode:

We have write the emojis with an Android Phone and, too, using diferents plugins for firefox. We also have activated the filter to see emoticons as images in our Moodle courses...

Is this the expected behavior? Is possible to see the emojis in a web browser? Is neccesary to upload the images to our server?...

Our database is MySQL 5.7.17 with utf8mb4 (full unicode support).

Note: We have tried it on a Moodle installation with Postgres and have the same behavior...

Thanks in advance for your time.

Re: Using emojis
 

Hello again... We have tried to see the emojis on a browser in Windows (Chrome) and the emojis are shown correctly.

It seems that it is necessary to install a specific font to see the emojis in Linux. True?

Thanks in advance for your time.

Hello again... Instaling an emoji font, we have been able to see the emojis correctly on Linux (Ubuntu) too:


sudo apt-add-repository ppa:eosrei/fonts

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install fonts-emojione-svginot


I don't know if there is a better way to do it, but this works...
