  • Does anyone know a way to automatically change text to superscript? I have a site loaded with hundreds of Registration marks, and they need to be superscript.

    I’ve tried a few javascript snippets, but nothing worked. This was my last attempt:

    <script type="text/javascript">
    jQuery(document).ready(function() {
     $("body").html().replace("®", " <sup>®</sup> ")

    Anyone know of a way that works in WordPress, maybe a function or something?

    This could do it, but (1) backup first and (2) be careful.



    kindly switch to HTML view while writing a post.The view can be changed from visual to html – check the upper right side of the page besides the formatting tools.then just do as mentioned above – to write x^2 , just type IN HTML MODE , x<sup>2</sup>.

    @gaurinigudkar Thank you for this. I had the same need as @malawimama, and I did as you said. It worked perfectly.

    Yea, I never figured this one out, ended up just giving up on it. Everyone knows how to add it from in the Visual editor (using the special characters button) or from the Text tab, but changing hundreds of instances at once in the database is still something I never found an answer for, unfortunately.
