Replacement of straight quotes with curly quotes


(Magnus Bäck) #1

It appears that Discourse in the past few weeks started replacing regular straight quotes with curly quotes. Could we do something about that? It's annoying to have to search/replace those characters if you're copying a JSON snippet or a portion from a configuration file into e.g. a terminal in order to reproduce something.

It's bad enough that Discourse is damaging posts that contains angle bracket sequences that look like XML/HTML elements.

Testing;

Edit - can you link or show an example?

Curly quotes, not brackets or parentheses. Try parsing this piece of JSON:

{"foo": "bar"}

Ahh sorry. (Too much json :p)

I also find this hideous.

@discourse can you comment on this please?

Hi!

This is a new feature added recently with our markdown engine update. To
remove it, disable the enable markdown typographer site setting.

Thanks!

I've made this change, let's see how it goes.
