Hungred Smart Quotes


This is a small plugin that replace the smart quotes function in WordPress that format/encode the code in WordPress. Hence, most symbols will be formatted/encoded
by WordPress texturize function.
‘&’ (ampersand) becomes ‘&’
‘”‘ (double quote) becomes ‘"’
”’ (single quote) becomes ‘'’
‘<‘ (less than) becomes ‘<‘
‘>’ (greater than) becomes ‘>’

The plugin will help solve the above problem and produce the result below,

‘&’ (ampersand) becomes ‘&’
‘"’ (double quote) becomes ‘”‘
‘'’ (single quote) becomes ”’
‘<‘ (less than) becomes ‘<‘
‘>’ (greater than) becomes ‘>’

A control panel is also provided in this plugin to add in special tag for your code or disable smart quote in WordPress.
This problem is due to external code format plugin that required special tag such as [php] in syntaxhigher evolved.
Upon, activate, all existing article that was previously formatted will be decoded by this plugin while future article will be protected by
the replaced texturize function for WordPress (so that the plugin tells WordPress texturize function to include your special tag from encode/format).

Hence, this plugin still provides you with the functionality of smart quote with the additional add on features to ease your life. Please visit for more information and screenshot
