Hi Debjit, thanks for this helpful article on disabling the smilies within WordPress! While searching for a way to disable all(!) the styles and scripts, I came across this tiny but efficient plugin: Really Disable Emojis – I am using this plugin on several client websites now, it does not need any configurations, just install and activate.
