This plugin (which was more a joke than a plugin anyway) is now deprecated. As of version 3.0, WordPress fixes itself occurrences of its name improperly capitalized.

The registered trademark, because it is one, is WordPress. One word, capitalized W and P, no space. It should not be written WordPress, or Word Press, or Word-press, or whatever.

Correctly Spell WordPress is a simple plugin that takes care of your pages and posts by correcting all the carelessly miswritten occurences of "WordPress", in titles, posts, pages and comments.

Download it:

There is a few optional and self explanatory edition, at the beginning of the plugin. Read and edit accordingly, or just run as is with default values.

Note: this plugin is not active here on my own blog, don't bother pointing out occurrences of "WordPress" you will find here and there. I'm not that anal :P

Other note: this plugin was a quick hack after a discussion between friends. It's untested, it will probably break things such as path containing "wordpress". Download it only if you want to hack and improve it :)

    [...] En av mine "Kjepphester", er skrivemåten av selve navnet WordPress – og jeg ber publikum legge merke til de to store bokstavene og ingen mellomrom i navnet til WordPress. WordPress er et varemerke/merke navn eller logo om du vil og man skal dermed skrive navnet på den måte som opphavsmannen tenkte/ønsker/vil at det skal skrives på. Det er mange som ikke klarer den biten, og det er mange som blir frustrert Noen har til og med sett seg så lei av denne (vanlige) feilen at de har laget et eget WordPress innstikk for å løse dette.

    This plugin broke my [gallery]'s in 2.8.1 b2. Basically, instead of getting this URL on the page:
    http://ottodestruct.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/2775873304_28de83e999_o-150×150.jpg

    It somehow changed it to this:
    http://ottodestruct.com/blog/-content/uploads/2008/08/2775873304_28de83e999_o-150×150.jpg

    No idea why. I suspect the "WP" matching is a bit too severe, but why it didn't replace it with "WordPress", I have no idea.
