When typing quotation marks in Discourse like
" " it renders them as
This is described
in several posts here.
Being from Germany and running a German language discussion forum, I would love to see an option to render those quotation marks automatically as
German quotation marks
Is it somehow possible to configure Discourse to automatically render those
" " as
(And optionally also single quotation marks
' ' as
I think this is a great idea.
Our markdown engine supports a custom
see README that can take a quote pair which can be passed from a site setting.
@gerhard want to take this one?
It’s now possible to configure the rendered quotation marks with the new
markdown_typographer_quotation_marks site setting. Discourse already ships defaults for German and French.
Awesome, thanks a lot, Gerhard
Just discovered that old postings are not automatically re-rendered with the correct quotes.
Only when I edit and save them.
Is there any command to tell Discourse to re-render all (cached?) postings, so that the quotes get automatically corrected?
rake posts:rebake will do the trick.
Thanks, these steps did the trick:
sudo ./launcher enter app
sudo rake posts:rebake
described here, too:
Either one of these should work
./launcher enter app
./launcher enter app
bundle exec rake posts:rebake
Sorry to bother again.
Looking at this post in my forum:
One can see that the quotes in the
body are correctly rendered as German quotes, while the quotes in the title are still rendered as English quotes.
Any chance to also have the quotes in the title as German quotes, too?
Here we go:
And I added a new rake task to update topic titles.
Can we somehow set the quotes appropriately when the language is changed
I believe we have some other site setting triggers based on the language changing, such as shorter minimum search length in Chinese?
I added defaults for German and French. Every other language will use the English default for now.
@uwe_keim Unfortunately I had to remove my changes that rendered the correct quotation marks in topic titles, because our code currently can’t distinguish between apostrophes and the right single quotation mark.
Since the last Discourse update, when I write a post title that contains a quote ', it is converted to › preceded by a single space when I create the post.
If I click on the edit title button, the input correctly shows ' but it is always converted to › (preceded by a single space) when I do confirm the title edition.
Also it appears that if I write a double quote ", it will be converted to ».
I’ll try to improve this in the future.
Thanks for mentioning this.
Hope to get the correct quotation marks in titles back soon
