Consistency – Typographical Corrector for Gutenberg

Consistency – Typographical Corrector for Gutenberg


Do you see the typographic corrector in your word processor that formats what you type in real time? Well, it’s the same idea but with Gutenberg.

This WordPress plugin is designed to help administrators enforce consistent typography in text content entered in the editor.
Corrections are applied automatically both during text entry and when pasting text.
Users can enable or disable autocorrect rules as needed.
Autocorrect is available for pages, posts, and custom post types (if they are configured to use the Rest API).

Automatic fixes are listed on the plugin repository on github.

Ctrl+Z or Cmd+Z right after a correction disables the correction for the next keystroke

Technically, rules are saved in the wp_options table, while active/inactive states are saved as user meta data.
This data is deleted when the plugin is uninstalled.

Settings are directly in a plugin sidebar under the Block Editor: no more searching for an options page, always available and discreet.

The locales supported by this plugin are:
‹fr_FR›, ‹fr_BE›, ‹en_US›, ‹en_AU›, ‹en_CA›, ‹en_NZ›, ‹en_ZA›, ‹en_GB›, ‹de_DE›, ‹de_AT›, ‹de_CH›, ‹ro_RO›


  • Rules specific to the English language and correction of a copy-pasted text.
  • Rules specific to the French language and correction on the fly.


  1. Install the plugin and activate.
  2. Configure the rules in the editor.

This extension is a must-have if you’re concerned about the consistency of your typography. In French, having non-breaking spaces automatically before characters that require them is a real time-saver! No more exclamation marks ending a line below the title

Excellent ! As useful in english than in FrenchEt en plus si vous vous retrouvez dans une situation qui le nécessite, la modification est débrayable. Depuis le temps que je me prenais la tête avec les insécables et les guillemets ouverts et fermés.Petit reproche sur les ordinaux, seul le premier caractère passe en sup. (ou je m› ‹y prend comme un manche ce qui est loin d’être impossible)Exemple : 1+e = 1e, mais 1+e+r = 1er Excellent quoiqu’il en soitUn grand merci Monsieur Antignac !
