    How To Make Smart Quotes Dumb, by ma3ry

    I have tried several plugins and several code snippets in my functions.php file to stop my smart quotes from being so smart. I want all of my apostrophes and quotes to be simple straight characters, not slanted.

    I have done a plugin conflict test and have also changed themes but they persist on being smarties.

    They look straight on the back end when I type them, but on the front end they are “smart”.

    Tom, from GeneratePress (my theme) says that a simple
    remove_filter('the_content', 'wptexturize');
    should do, but it doesn’t.

    They are stubborn. He suggested that perhaps you might have seen this issue before so I’m hoping that you might have a solution.

    Many thanks!
