[resolved] Ellipsis conversion (3 posts)

    Hi all.

    I've only just noticed that WP seems to convert 3 full stops (periods, for all you Americanos) into an ellipsis when a post is published. I'd like to switch this auto conversion off but can't find any help on the matter.

    I should also mention that I am using the TinyMCE Advanced plug-in, just in case that makes a difference.

    Can anybody give me a solution or clue where to start?

    Cheers.

    Um, it's AMERICAN, no "O"

    Dashboard - Settings - Writings.
    Look for "converting" Convert emoticons like :-) and :-P to graphics on display

    right at the top.

    @ cryptidwolf:

    Nope - that didn't work. This did though:

    I know it's "American", I was just being silly:
