No Curly Quotes


Stops WordPress turning inverted commas and double quotes ( ‘ and ” ) into curly quotes in blog post content. Options to control behaviour of titles, post content, excerpt and comments separately: e.g. you can keep curly quotes in titles, but not in post content. Will work out of the box; no need to edit theme files.
