apply_filters( ‘no_texturize_shortcodes’, string[] $default_no_texturize_shortcodes )

Filters the list of shortcodes not to texturize.


An array of shortcode names.

More Information

By default, WordPress will automatically texturize all post/page content through the wptexturize() function, even content in shortcodes. The texturize process replaces “normal” quotes with “fancy” quotes (aka “smart” quotes or “curly” quotes). Sometimes this is NOT what you want… particularly if your shortcode must contain raw, preprocessed text.


$no_texturize_shortcodes = apply_filters( 'no_texturize_shortcodes', $default_no_texturize_shortcodes );

    add_filter( 'no_texturize_shortcodes', 'shortcodes_to_exempt_from_wptexturize' );
    function shortcodes_to_exempt_from_wptexturize( $shortcodes ) {
        $shortcodes[] = 'myshortcode';
        return $shortcodes;
