Smart Quotes

Description

Change the quotation marks, that are automatically rendered as smart or curly quotes inside your content, from the default English style (“…”) to anything you like, e.g. to Croatian/Hungarian/Polish/Romanian style quotation marks („…”), Czech or German style („…“), Danish style (»…«), Finnish or Swedish style (”…”), French style (« … » – with spaces), Greek/Italian/Norwegian/Portuguese/Russian/Spanish/Swiss style («…» – without spaces), Japanese or Traditional Chinese style (「⋯」), or actually to any arbitrary character combination of your choice. Of course you can turn off curly quotes entirely by picking the so-called "dumb" quotes ("…").

Installation

  1. Upload the entire smart-quotes folder to the wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to the ‘Writing Settings’ screen where you will be able to configure your ‘Smart Quotes’
