I'm managing a client website (I did not build it).

What's happening is that WordPress is automatically changing letters into capital/small. Happens in front-end only.

This "Sophie Jane-Berney" turns into "Sophie Jane-berney" automatically when page loads. Notice the 'b'

These French words "Domaines d’activité" turn into "Domaines D’activité" automatically. Notice the 'D'.

For a second, they appear as they should, but as the page finishes loading, they change cases.

How can I stop that?

    This is a css issue. Look for text-transform: capitalize in your css files

  • I know about the CSS property. It does not seem to be causing this.

  • You mentioned for a second they appear as they should so it should be a css issue

  • Using Developer Tools, if I do text-transform: none!important; to the "Domaines D’activité", nothing happens -- while in the back-end, it is entered as "Domaines d’activité" Using same technique, nothing happens to "Sophie Jane-berney". I can however get the desired look by applying it text-transform: capitalize;. But what is causing this, to at least the "Domaines D’activité"? Because it will fix the issue with Sophie, but not with the French words.

Please check if there is any javascript issue that makes this things happen in your site. As per my understanding check your script.js or try by disabling plugins installes in your wordpress.
