    Hi!

    I’ve read about the related posts about the “hyphen issue” you mentioned, but I am still trying to add hyphen rather than en/em dash if there is a way..
    Heyphen looks just neater and more elegant than dashes, I wish you agree!

    Have tried added html code &#8208 ; for hyphen in the seo titles but it automatically changes to non-breaking hyphen &#8209, looks thinner than hyphen.

    I know there are issues and the hyphen is really not a big thing to consider and to invest much time into, but I am still wondering(and hoping) if there is one day that we can get hyphen back in TSF future version?

    TSF is so great that I cannot reject but the hyphen thing is just itching me non-stop..

    What do you say? Thanks!

    Hello!

    You switched on a new lightbulb above my head. 💡

    When you enter either - or - (different from ‐ or ‐) in the title/description fields, the hyphen will be maintained, as it’ll bypass WordPress’ texturization protocol.

    Is that the hyphen you were looking for?

    In that, I think I can reintroduce the hyphen as a separator 🙂 Thanks!

    Hi Sybre,

    Yes it works!

    When added in title/description, the first time it will show correctly as hyphen, but if you update the page again, then the hyphen cannot pass wordpress texturization and will be transferred to en dash again. but that’s not a problem, i can alwasy add unicode everytime when I have to change title/description, not very often though.

    Thanks!

    Awesome!

    I got a patch ready, where I’ve reintroduced the hyphen option, and that’ll allow you to edit the titles without the cumbersome HTML-character pasting 🙂

    The patch.

    It’ll be shipped in the next minor update (ETA unknown). Cheers!
