    I’m doing a comparison table, in which I’ll have checkboxes indicating whether a feature is supported or not.
    I’m trying to use these codes for my unchecked and checked boxes:
    & #9744; which is an empty (unchecked) checkbox: ☐
    & #9745; which is checked version of same checkbox: ☑

    But the checked box is getting turned into a blue checkbox image like this:

    You can see live example at http://dev.solacesystems.com/checkbox-test/

    Since they get turned into that pretty blue checkbox even if all of my plugins are disabled I assume it’s Enfold doing that.
    Never mind, I just checked with another site I run that uses a different theme and it’s converted too.
    The URL of the image being placed there is https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/72×72/2611.png which if you strip away the path leads to wordpress, so my new theory is that it’s core wordpress doing the swapout.

    I wouldn’t mind if checked and unchecked were BOTH being converted to something that’d be consistent, but just converting one isn’t cool.

    Appreciate any info or assistance.

    Hey JeeBar!

    We checked the live example on link you provided and the checkbox is an image. To make any changes to the look of it you need to alter it in photoshop and replace the old one with new image by uploading it to the same location.

    Best regards,


    Yes, I know it’s an image. I provided a URL to the image in my question. : )

    My question is…WHY is it an image? In my code it’s not an image, but upon presentation it becomes one.
    But I’ve come to believe it’s a WordPress thing not a theme thing, though, so you can close this thread out.
