One of the safest ways to do this to get Started you want to head over to plugins Add new And from here we can search for WP code What I also like about this is it'll Allow you to basically reduce all your Overall plugins you do things like Disable comments you usually need a Special plugin for that if you want to Disable lazy load you need a special Plugin for that you can remove all of Those and just use one plugin and WP Code we're going to install this And we want to stick around to activate It as well Once it's activated you can either go to Code Snippets here or if you ever need To come back from your dashboard you now Have a code snippet area we can go to Code Snippets to see them in action Right now you see we have disable AZ Load custom CSS display last updated Date WP code has several to choose from and There's several that you can see all These Snippets are already here so you Can remove any kind of plugin that does This for you and simply turn these on Just little bits of code for you For this one we're going to add our own Custom code Snippets so we'll use this One you snip it and from here we want to Add a title And now we want to add some code

We will have this code that you can copy In our written tutorial and I have the Written tutorial in the description Below so we're going to paste this bit Of code In and you'll see all these little Errors over here What we want to do is we want to change This to PHP snippet and then it will Remove those errors Once we add that we want to scroll down To make sure that the insert method is Auto insert and that it runs everywhere Because we want this on our whole site And now the last thing we need to do is Come up here and make this active And let's go ahead and save snippet And now we can open in a new tab and I'm Going to go back To My inspect element I'm going to Ctrl F to find that WP Emoji string That we had talked about earlier now you See that it's not in here So we've properly disabled it just fine Now method two is by using another Plugin so I'll set this to inactive and Updated we'll go to plugins add new And we're going to search for disable Emojis This is the one we want so let's go Ahead and install it And activate it as well

And with this one the plugin works right Out of the box there's nothing else that You need to do And if you want to see a little bit more Of what WP code can do for you watch This video next as we cover how to Insert headers and Footers into your Website and I'll see you over there
