Are you looking for a way to disable automatic formatting in the visual editor? This snippet disables the automatic formatting in the visual editor if you would prefer to format the content yourself.
All you have to do is add this code to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin:
remove_filter('the_content', 'wptexturize'); remove_filter('the_excerpt', 'wptexturize');
Note: If this is your first time adding code snippets in WordPress, then please refer to our guide on how to properly copy / paste code snippets in WordPress, so you don’t accidentally break your site.
