First WordPress Plug-In

My first WordPress plug-in: Decurlify RSS.

This deals with the hugely irritating feature that WordPress has of putting curly quotes into titles of RSS feeds. These then can appear as question marks when aggregated elsewhere (for example using the Magpie RSS feed reader).

Just install this plug-in and all these annoying curly quotes should be removed from the titles of your feed entries!

You can find the plug-in here.

  1. Great plugin; I love it. Question: how do I modify it to affect the entire feed rather than just the titles? I’m tired of seeing “’” all over my feeds! (I guess I could quit using conjunctions. :-\ )
