How to Fix: Extra contraction marks error in new WordPress posts

. Posted in Errors 903 Views No Comments

After migrating your WordPress site to a new hosting company, or for some other reasons  you see extra quotation marks in every word such as “you’ll” or “don’t”. Not only in new post you see quotation marks are becoming doubled. But also, older posts that were okay before, are now showing extra contraction marks.

This error you can see if you are copying and pasting from another program such as MS Word or something like that? When copying from elsewhere click the appropriate icon (5 or 6).

A pop-up box will appear. Paste the copied material into it and click “Insert”. The cleaned up version of the HTML mark-up will appear in your post. [Reference:Visual Editor]

First of all, check and make sure you have enabled this > Settings > Writing > Formatting
__ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically.
Scroll down and click “Save Changes”

There is one more solution by editing your Theme’s Function.php file. This solution is from WordPress Error Website on the following link: WP Seeing Extra Quotation Marks in New Posts.

remove_filter ('single_post_title', 'wptexturize');
remove_filter ('bloginfo', 'wptexturize');
remove_filter ('wp_title', 'wptexturize');

To remove it from other places as well:

remove_filter ('category_description', 'wptexturize');
remove_filter ('list_cats', 'wptexturize');
remove_filter ('comment_author', 'wptexturize');
remove_filter ('comment_text', 'wptexturize');
remove_filter ('the_title', 'wptexturize');
remove_filter ('the_content', 'wptexturize');
remove_filter ('the_excerpt', 'wptexturize');
