aam_typogrify - Typogrify: Widon't + CSS hooks for better typography

Bug Work-Around

I’ve received a bug report stating that the ampersand-wrapping feature doesn’t work in some circumstances, due to a conflict in the way Typogrify and the built-in widont functionality work. This can also lead to double-widonting:

<h3>My Awesome&nbsp;Article&#160;Title</h3>

To get around this, disable built-in widont for article titles like this:

<txp:title no_widow="0" />

A pending update will fix this problem, as well as simplifying the plugin to use a single template tag (the old ones will still work).

Credit goes to Benjamin White for finding this bug. Thanks, Benjamin!

Plugin Description

This plugin brings the typographical goodies of the Typogrify filters for Django to our favorite CMS. It includes the widow-prevention of aam_widont, along with some other good stuff.

I’ll post more details here when I get the chance, but you’ll find all the details you can handle in my blog post on the plugin. You can also skip right to the good part and download it now, safe in the knowledge that this plugin’s documentation rocks pretty darned hard. Well… at least as hard as one can reasonably expect documentation to rock, anyway.

NOTE: aam_typogrify is not compatible with the older aam_widont plugin. They both use the same template tag for widow control, but use different code to do the job. Having them both installed and active is kind of like the Ghostbusters crossing the streams — a bad idea1. Deactivate and uninstall aam_widont before installing Typogrify.

current release: v0.1

1 Okay, so it won’t cause total protonic reversal. It will make any problems you find more difficult to troubleshoot, however.

Actually, I just downloaded the Typogrify plugin for WordPress. It looks like a dead easy port. I think I just found my next project. :-)

That’s weird. I just double-checked, and there are no banned IPs in my database. Are you sure that you clicked “submit” after previewing your comment? The comment preview will appear with a yellow background, but it won’t actually be published until you click the submit button.

Let me know, please, because if there’s something wrong with my site I’d definitely like to fix it. Meanwhile, you can leave any comments or questions you have about the plugin here. I get an e-mail notification when there are new posts for me to read.

I’d spaced out the remote blacklist check for a moment when I responded to kus, but I’ve already made that fix to my settings. It could be that kus is just unfortunate enough to share an ISP with a known spammer.
