There is such nothing to this that I hesitate to make it a plugin, much less release it. Here it is anyways.
Basically, wptexturize() (located in /wp-includes/functions-formatting.php), performs certain character and text replacements that I’m not too groovy with, namely this ( ‘ ) being replaced with ( ‘ ) or ( ’ ), and ( ” ) being replaced with ( “ ) or ( ” ). I appreciate the other character and text replacements that were happening, just not those. I could just as well have commented out the code for those offending substitutions in the functions-formatting.php file, but I prefer to modify the core code as little as possible.
- Download the file wpuntexturize.zip and unzip it into your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
Copy and paste the the code ( wpuntexturize.phps ) into a file called wpuntexturize.php, and put that file into your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
- Activate the plugin from your WordPress admin ‘Plugins’ page.
This is a helper function that retrieves the URL of the image for a specified category. Returns ” if no image was found:
