Smart Quotes in topics?

It seems that Discourse has started “automatically” converting “dumb” quotes into smart quotes in topic text (not just titles) (maybe in 1.9.5 or 1.9.6?).

My users have complained about this feature, but I don’t see any way to turn it off.

Is there a preference somewhere for it? I can’t see anything in my profile settings. In the site settings, I have the option:

but that refers explicitly to “topic title”.

Is there a separate setting for content? Or does this setting now do more than it says?

The site setting you want to disable is enable markdown typographer.


Ahh. Thanks. Perhaps this setting should mention “quotes” or “smart” or some other word that people might search for…?

I believe @codinghorror had a similar issue yesterday and improved the copy
