Character Encoding - WordPress Replaces &#8217 etc. (3 posts)

    This has really been frustrating me for some time now. WordPress seems to take all the custom character encoding I put into my blog ie &#8217 for a right single quote, and converts it all into the character equivalent. I want it to actually keep it the way it is and not do this substitution.

    Is there any way to prevent wordpress from doing this?

    There is but it will leave you open to hacking against your MySQL database. It does that for a reason.

    That's actually standard MySQL security. Escaping the quotes.

    So how do people get around this in wordpress? I mean everyone can't possibly be using the symbols for inches and feet in the place of quotes and apostrophes. Surely there must be a plugin for this somewhere.
