Remove Double Space
[resolved] Will the Plugin Work Retroactively? (3 posts)

    i have activated this plugin, and was curious if it will strip double-spaces following periods from existing posts, or only do so for those written after the plugin is activated?

    The plugin will collapse double spaces for any post regardless of when it was published. It only operates when the post is displayed, so the posts are still saved into the WP database as they were written (double spaces and all). This could be handy if you want the post to remain unchanged, but still only have one space displayed on the front end.

    I originally tried testing having it run prior to saving to the database, but it ended up messing with the posts and I wasn't able to fix it. Maybe in a future release...
