    Hello,
    I use a footnote plug-in where we insert the note between (( )) in the text. I’ve configured wp-Typography to replace “” by «». But when there is a note just before the closing quotation mark, it is not replaced.

    For instance, on this post, here is what I have in the editor :

    Le "nouveau socialisme((long note))″ kurde, ou...

    It should be displayed :
    Le « nouveau socialisme4 » kurde, ou...

    but instead is displayed :
    Le « nouveau socialisme4″ kurde, ou...

    Thanks for your help !

    I’ll look into it. It’s possible that the use of (()) is too idiosyncratic to implement, though.

    Edit: Ah, by the time wp-Typography looks at it, the (()) has already been replaced. Then it’s probably a regular bug in the underlying library.

    Actually wp-Typography worked well with (()) when I used this plugin (I had to abandon it since it is not maintained anymore), so yes it must be something else!

    Also, maybe it can be of some help, Footnotes Made Easy allows the user to change the plug-in priority. The default value is 11.

    Thank you @maloherry, I’ve thought already about that. As a workaround, you can try increasing the priority to something higher than what wp-Typography uses (9999, unless you filter the value or use the NextGEN Gallery plugin).

    However, I think there might a bug in the PHP-Typography library that should be fixed. I’ll have to look what HTML markup is generated for the footnotes, though.

    All right it works with the priority at 10000, thanks!

    OK, I now see what the underlying issue is: The parser only sees the 4 inside the span as the adjacent text node in the DOM, and the resulting string 4" results in 4&Prime being output (whereas socialisme4" would result in socialisme4 »).

    I’ll experiment a bit to see whether it is possible to have all siblings be taken into account, but probably not (easily). It might remain an unsolvable edge case.

    Since there is a workaround, I’ll mark this thread as resolved.

    OK still, if you can find a real solution that would be great, since the workaround seems to be causing strange behaviors. For instance, random notes and the WP admin bar are now in italic, I can’t figure out why…

    That would sound more of an issue with the footnote plugin (unclosed tags somewhere). Anyway, another workaround is adding a space before the closing ", e.g. socialisme((long note)) ". Spacing normalization should patch things up after replacing the " with the correct French quote characters.

    My bad, that was due to a badly closed <em> tag : ((note <em> note))</em>
    Changing the priority of the footnote plugin seems to make this an issue, but it can easily be corrected!
