Enhancement: request: filter support before shortcodes are parsed or convert " into "
|Reported by:||archon810||Owned by:|
My team uses Windows Live Writer to do all posting, but we constantly have trouble using shortcodes because WLW, being as awesome as it is in other aspects, keeps converting the double quotes in shortcodes to
This breaks shortcode attributes, and while we're working around it using single quotes, we can't use shortcode attribute data that contains single quotes then.
So, is there a good fix for this?
One workaround would be to have a filter that runs before shortcodes are parsed that converts " back to ". However, in the shortcode API, I found no filters in use at all, so that's out without modifying WP source.
Alternatively, the API could just pre-process the data and take care of this case, which should be solved in WP core yet again.
Is there some way to resolve this without the above modifications to core?
