Support » Fixing WordPress » Quotes encode problems…

  • Hi folks,

    I’ve been using WordPress for several months now, one thing I couldn’t figure out is that the quotes are somehow encoded to double-byte characters. From the html source, I see single-quotes are translated to ’ .

    Please note that I haven’t touched the wordpress source code, nor the web server configuration. I’ve actually installed wordpress on multiple web servers, all have the same problem.

    Any idea folks? :/

    Thanks in advance!

    (Please remove the space between the characters.)

    I believe this is part of the default WordPress filters. It translates quotes to fancy quotes, — to a long dash, etc.

    Try this plugin to override WordPress’ default formatting: http://dev.wp-plugins.org/wiki/TextControl

    Hi Viper007Bond, thanks for your reply. I’ve tried the plugin, it worked for the blog posts, however, the post titles as well as the main blog title are still the same. I wonder which files should I modify in order to fix this issue?

    Thanks.
