Tell us what you are trying to do?
On this page you'll see a section called Holiday Offers
hidden link

It draws in a CPT Offers using a shortcode.

Whenever the page is edited and published, the shortcode breaks because the straight quote marks get saved as curly quotes, and we need to go back in and edit the code repeatedly changing the quotes back to straight ones.

Is there a fix that you know of? Is there a shortcode of yours that doesn't require the use of quotes?




Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

A character conversion like this can happen if the 'Visual' tab and not the 'Text' tab of the classic editor is selected for editing.
( example screenshot attached )

Also, the view's shortcode should still work if no quotes are used:

[wpv-view name=view-name]



Thank you Waqar

If I do not use any quotes the shortcode works perfectly.
