Support » Plugins » Plugin to fix characters when c&ping from MS Word?

  • There used to be a plugin curlyEnc but it no longer exists. My client has been posting a lot of blog posts (over 100) and she’s been copying and pasting from Word, so all the formatted text is causing certain characters (quotes, apostrophe’s etc) to look weird. I would hate to go into the source code one by one to fix them all because it would take FOREVER. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Any help is much appreciated!!

  • Don’t paste content from Microsoft Word into WordPress as the pasted text will also contain Word’s own formatting. Sooner or later, this formatting will stop your pages from being displayed correctly (if at all) in Internet Explorer. If you cannot possibly manage without Word, paste your text into NotePad (or another text editor) first, then copy from NotePad into WordPress. Or use a weblog client.

    Hi Thanks for your reply.

    I know this- it’s my client who is entering in these blog posts.

    I already told her not to use word in the future but what’s done is done. Is there any way to fix these hundreds of posts that already exist?

    You could try something like http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/safe-search-replace/ bit I suspect that most of these posts will now have to be cleaned up manually. 🙁
