Automatic NBSP

Description

Support typographic rules in Polish and Czech
Moves conjunctions, prepositions, etc. to the new line. ( sierotki )

Support punctuation marks in French
Adds a non-breaking space   before punctuation marks as ! ? ; % « »

How it works?
The plugin automatically adds HTML entity   ( non-breaking space ) after selected words or phrases. E.g. ‘Mr. Someone’ should be ‘Mr. Someone’. Works with:

  • posts
  • titles
  • pages
  • custom post types
  • comments
  • widgets
  • custom contents

You can create your own list of words/phrases or import our proposals.

Custom contents
You can use the function <?php auto_nbsp($content, $echo); ?> to add &nbsp; to the custom content. Use this in your code.
1. Param $content – (string) (required) Free text
2. Param $echo – (bool) (optional) true (echo), false (return), Default: true

Other features:
* Advanced Custom Fields compatibility

I was hunting for a mysteriously broken code block formatting, where some line breaks were stripped away. It turned out this plug-in was the cause. Share it seems not longer maintained. I would love to continue to use it.

I installed this plugin mainly to auto-add non-breakable space after prepositions. This works well. I also appreciate the easy settings page of this plugin. However, there are many things which could be done better: The plugin page claims to cover Czech but I can only choose between Polish and English vocabulary in the settings. There is no information on whether the plugin kicks in when saving a post or rendering it. I discovered it’s while rendering. This is good to fix older posts as well but it might make each rendering a bit slower. A link to the plugin settings could be shown on the Plugins page. The plugin only offers adding &nbsp; after the customizable vocabulary words and before preset punctuation marks. I’d be glad if both lists were customizable. The plugin offers no way to automatically add &nbsp; in more complicated situations, e.g. after numbers, especially ordinal ones (the German or Czech way). And last but not least, the plugin should be tested with the latest WordPress releases, although it’s doing well for me with WordPress 5.6.

Hello, While WordPress is at version 5, I don’t understand why it is still necessary to use a plugin to fix the problem of no break spaces before double height signs. Fortunately Damian Gora developed Automatic NBSP and solved the problem. Many thanks Damian for this great plugin, simple and efficient.
