Custom Emoji Set

Hello everyone! I noticed that due to recent licensing changes Discourse removed Joy Pixels from the emoji sets. I have a license for Joy Pixels and was wondering how I can upload the set back, so it is integrated with the emoji picker and not just the custom emojis section.

I’m still wondering if this would be possible. I did see the setting in my site admin section called external emoji url but I am not sure what it wants in the directory of that URL.

Under Admin → Customize, there is an emoji menu where you can upload custom emojis for use anywhere on your site.

I believe I misunderstood. You want to upload a whole emoji set.

My only real issue with that is that I want to completely replace the emoji set with Emoji One instead of just adding a few custom ones.

That is technically doable using this setting as a hack.

Upload the emoji set you want to a website you control, follow the directory structure we use and borrow one of the existing sets name. For example, let’s say you have https://cookieman-emojis.com for this:

  1. Create a folder at the root of the website named google

  2. Upload you custom emoji set inside that folder following the directory/file structure you see at https://github.com/discourse/discourse/tree/master/public/images/emoji/google

  3. Test if it works by visiting https://cookieman-emojis.com/google/a.png. Does it shows the correct emoji?

  4. Go to your own Discourse instance and set external emoji url to https://cookieman-emojis.com. Also set emoji set to Google.
