Emoji not displaying + FIX

I discovered that when users tried to insert an message with Emoji’s (specific example from iOS phones) the comment could not be places.

So with the help of these topics:

I came up with 2 database queries that solved the problem:

ALTER TABLE wp_gwolle_gb_entries CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;

ALTER TABLE wp_gwolle_gb_log CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;

This solved the problem for us!
Hopefully others can use this solution for future use.
