Localised "smart" quotes in Title too

As far as I see at the moment, textpattern does work “differently” when handling quotes: In my normal text there are the quotes which are defined in my language’s settig. But the Title – albeit also should be textiled (i use the ecape=“textile”) – does not.

How can I get titles which are textiled nd correctly quoted too?

EDIT: You can see it even here – that’s why I set some weird quotes

Re: Localised "smart" quotes in Title too

Hi Michael,

Does this work for you?

<txp:title escape="textile" />

And if you’re using an older version of Textpattern that doesn’t support the new(er) escape attribute, you can use smd_wrap and do:

<txp:smd_wrap transform="textile"><txp:title /></txp:smd_wrap>

EDIT: Sorry, didn’t see your later addition with the escape attribute (it only refreshed now on posting). I guess you mean, is the textile that is applied with the escape attribute different to the regular textile? Just one idea: does this different behaviour happen with a brand new article, or might the textiled text have been made with an older article created with an earlier version of txp?

AFAIR, quote symbols are pulled from language strings. Body and Excerpt are textiled admin-side in the language of the logged-in user (normally the author). Title is textiled (via escape) public-side, which can use a different language.

Re: Localised "smart" quotes in Title too

Hi,
thanks, but in my install escape=“textile” doesn’t have any effect on the title-quotes. They stay as they are (and my install is set to german).
The textiled text has been made with 4.8.2, so there shouldn’t be any difference.
I created a short test article which exactly the same content in title and body and this article clearly shows: It’s working well in the body, but it doesn’t in the title.

And thanks for the hint to the language of the public side … but this is also “de”, the admin-language-tab lists de for both, admin and public.
I just can imagine there might be any hidden textpattern-public-language-code which I cannot see at the moment?
Or maybe … I remember some issues with de vs. de-de?

Weird, it works fine for me, whatever language. In German I get Test „quotes“ with <txp:title escape="textile" />. Are you sure to use the right page/form?

Re: Localised "smart" quotes in Title too

This suggestion from jakob works for me, Textpattern 4.8.3.

I like these quotation marks in German (Switzerland), it also works in <txp:title escape="textile, p" />:

#@language de-de
txt_quote_single_open => ‹
txt_quote_single_close => ›
txt_quote_double_open => «
txt_quote_double_close => »
