Using Smart Quotes in Jekyll

November 10th, 2012

Be "cool" “cool”

While working on this post I decided I wanted to go the distance and get smart quotes working.

Here’s how.

In your _config.yml file, add it as an extension to the rdiscount markdown parser:

markdown: rdiscount
    extensions: [smart]

Note: You need to restart your Jekyll server to see the effects. (That took me 10 minutes to figure out.)
