  • Smart Quotes ruin expression code…

    Posted by Filip Vandueren on January 21, 2021 at 9:38 am

    Hi guys,

    I hope its a simple fix, but any post that has code which is not put explictly inside of a code tag (which hardly anyone does) gets its “quotes” substituted with “smart” quotes. But this makes it invalid Javascript.

    This is also true of all old migrated posts, you can’t just copy/paste expressions anymore.

    a="hello world" // should be ok

    a=”hello world” // will not work

    Thank you so much, Filip!

    That is indeed an important bump in the road for us to fix. I have taken note of it, and will bring this up to the COW developing team. As we explore further into the nature of The COW’s new platform, we are excited to be able to refine and improve our new environment. This was our original inspiration behind making the grand switch, so we hope to be able to fix this soon.
