On our previous version 3.3.1 Moodle we were able to type and a smiley face automatically converted to an Emoji.
We have since upgraded our Unicocde and MySQl versions due to messages in the environment report. We also have installed an SSL certificate so we no longer have any warning messages. We are now using Moodle 3.5.
We are able to copy and paste the line from the MySQL full unicode support and the images show but not when we type the HTML Settings Text e.g.
Were we just lucky this worked before, could this have been a browser issue or something else?
We were using emojis in feedback to students which they found amusing and engaging. They had a positive impact on the use of Moodle compared to Google Classroom for example.
I guess it is not the end of the world and I can use an Chrome plugin to achieve the same result. Just would have liked full functionality of the HTML Settings function unless I am mistaken for what it's purpose is and how it should be used.
Many thanks for your continued support.
