It's so weird. I don't know what is going on with me. 
It's pretty much the same like yesterday when you pointed out about the CSS that was causing the issue. 

I commented this out in the functions.php 

// remove_action( 'wp_head', 'print_emoji_detection_script', 7 );
// remove_action( 'wp_print_styles', 'print_emoji_styles' );

And as you can imagine, now it works!

... and actually the WP Engine support just helped me because they said I should check if it works with another theme.


Thanks for your support, Andy! I learned some new things, so it wasn't wasted time, I think.

I was just about to send you a couple of links to the WP Codex but looks like you do not need them.

I am most curious as to why those two calls should be removed by a theme. Seems a most odd thing to do but hey - you're working again which is all that matters.

Besides my focused work on creating these websites for my clients, I have this "kinda hobby" to explore Wordpress functionalities and tune my functions.php. Sometimes it results in adding code that is just useless and in this particular case it was just that, adding respectively removing a functionality that messed with the proper functioning of what we consider as core functionality. 

People will want to use smilies in the forum, so it is good that they are back and we can just add those characters that will be turned into images. 🙂

Yay! It really bothered me that it didn't work.
