Help, my code examples are messed with!

One supremely annoying problem I had the first days of using WordPress was that it kept on “beautifying” my code samples. For example replacing normal quotes with curly ones. For normal text that’s okay I guess, but for code it isn’t!

For example:

string s = “this is a string”;

Luckily however, this can be fixed by using using a plugin called Preserve Code Formatting by Scott Reilly. Very useful!

Just install it and after that WordPress will keep it’s dirty hands off content within <code>-tags.

The code sample above now reads:

string s = "this is a string";
