WP Smiley Switcher


WordPress has yet no settings for changing the smileys. This plugin disables WordPress default smileys and allows you to choose what smileys to use. If you have created an own smiley pack you can use that one as well.


  • Choose own smiley gallery directory
  • Choose a smiley pack included with WP Smiley Switcher
  • Enable / disable smileys with posts / pages
  • Enable / disable smileys with comments

Will this delete the WordPress default smileys?

No, it just disables them. If you deactivate the plugin the WordPress default smileys will be back.
