    what are the reasons you cant post emoji directly from your phone to xf ? is it something that can be overcome by an add on ? or we have to wait for xf 2.0 ?

    It's the database table set that's limiting.

    You need to be aware that iOS emoji are not the same as android and they show up as squares on desktop PC's.

    There are multiple libraries that will look after it for you but I've not seen a clean integration.

    Emoji is a Unicode standard. Regardless of platform, the emoji transmitted is the same. Representation is what differs from platform to platform. And they will work on desktops and browsers that include support for the characters.

    It's a standard in motion. Rapid motion.

    I really hope XF devs thought about this when developing XF2, It would be nice to have all the emoji working cross platform in XF2.
