"Un-screwing up" smart quote modification (4 posts)

    I'm terribly embarrassed to be posting this, but I've searched and I still can't seem to find the solution...

    Once upon a time, I removed the smart quotes from the posts. Now that I'm trying to get them back, I can't remember where to make the change...or really even what change(s) to make...Quotes in the post titles are still correct (smart), and possibly in a few other places, so I must have done something to some other function.

    I've looked through wpautop and texturize, but even if those are the right places to be looking, I didn't simply comment out the stuff -- I deleted it. I'm a moron. I would greatly appreciate some help! Thanks in advance!

    If you want them back, either upgrade, if you don't have the latest version, or if you do, download it again and copy over the appropriate core files.

    There shouldn't be a reason to run upgrade.php, just copy them over and it should work.

    Oh, BACKUP FIRST.

    ;-)

    It's been a long while since I've bothered with this, but I'm still having the same problem...

    I totally skipped the whole upgrade procedure and just gutted all my original wp files. All of them! I left my database and tables intact...

    When I replaced all the files with the shiny new 1.5.2 files, I realized that the curly quotes were still missing...It can't possibly be something from the wp-includes files! If anyone knows what I need to do to fix this, please let me know! I looked through the database tables, just in case there was something in there, but I really have no idea what to look for...Again, thanks in advance!

    Regards
