We discovered a quirk/bug.
In EasySocial Group timeline, one can start typing the code for an emoji and a dropdown of options appears. If one selects one of these and then continues typing, the emoji will appear. However, if one types the full code of the emoji and then continues to type after that emoji code (and does not provide a space between the emoji code and the text taht follows), then the emoji does not appear and instead the emoji code is displayed.
It appears that when selecting an emoji from the dropdown that a delimiter is automatically applied, but when one types the full emoji code, the delimiter is not automatically applied right after that emoji code. If I add a space after the typed emoji code, then the emoji works, but only if a space immediately follows the emoji code.
I have attached a simple screenshot to show our testing of various conditions - some where teh emoji icon shows, others where the code shows instead.
