#2636 closed defect (invalid)

Remove "special quotes" from readme/description text

Description

The new design changes regular single and double quotes into the special quotes, which messes things up for things like shortcode plugins where if you copy/paste the shortcode/code will not work. Can these be removed from the output on the plugin directory pages?

Can you give an example of where this happens?

Ideally, it should not be doing it if you're using code block markup around the example code.

Replying to Otto42:

Just added some in and yes, it appears to be the case on the new design actually:

The formatting messed up on the old design if it was done inline, but now all appears to be well.

So can close the ticket and just use code blocks :)
