How would this be done with javascript or a plugin? This would prevent widows from happening in my WordPress posts. Shaun Inman has created a similar plugin for post titles, but not for actual posts. Can his plugin be modified to include posts?


Here is a screenshot of my post with a widow:



Drop in add_filter( 'the_content', 'widont' ); (and the same for the_excerpt if required).

This'll apply the function to the post content in addition to the title (the_title).

  • That worked! I added that line of code directly underneath add_filter('the_title', 'widont'); – Dave Aug 21 '12 at 2:02
