Disable wp-emoji and wp-embed WordPress Plugin
We suggest to download the tagged release as zip from our GitHub repo and manually upload and install on your WordPress site. We are using the plugin. Our this website really became slow. There are Emoji stuffs too, rightly pointed by the other WordPress users.
This plugin is a slight modification of Disable Embeds Plugin by Pascal Birchler. What this plugin does:
- Remove the oEmbed REST API endpoint.
- Turn off oEmbed auto discovery.
- Remove oEmbed discovery links.
- Remove oEmbed-specific Plugin from Tiny-MCE WordPress Editor.
Just activate the plugin and you are good to go. If you want embeds and emoji back again, simply deactivate the plugin.
