1. I type the text "...." in a post.
2. The HTML tab of the editor also shows "...."
3. The function
the_content() returns the html code #8230; as text. (I removed the ampersand here.) The first three dots have been 'corrected' internally.
I always thought that the HTML tab of the WordPress editor was the same as what the
the_content() function returned.
Character #8230 is a horizontal ellipsis but I just want the normal three dots. I'd like to ask, is there a way to prevent this without writing PHP script to alter the output of
the_content()? I mean, can this be helped with a setting or another simple change?
