Overview of the issue

When using the Divi theme, you will notice that when a button’s text containing an apostrophe is translated using the WPML, the apostrophe displays as the HTML entity.


Please, make sure of having a full backup of your site before proceeding.

  • Add the following code into your theme’s functions.php file:
    // WPML workaround for compsupp-7001
    add_filter('do_shortcode_tag', 'wpml_compsupp7001_decode_et_pb_button_text', 10, 4);
    function wpml_compsupp7001_decode_et_pb_button_text($output, $tag, $attr, $m) {
        if ( class_exists('Sitepress') && 'et_pb_button' === $tag && isset($attr['button_text'])) {
            // Decode both the ampersand and the apostrophe
            $output = html_entity_decode($output, ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8');
        return $output;

Note, keep in mind that if you are using a Slider button, you will need to use this line:

    if ( class_exists('Sitepress') && 'et_pb_slide' === $tag && isset($attr['button_text'])) {

Instead of:

    if ( class_exists('Sitepress') && 'et_pb_button' === $tag && isset($attr['button_text'])) {

    • Hello there,
      Probably, you will need to modify the « et_pb_button » for the shortcode responsable of the accordion as we proposed for the Slider. However, for helping you better, please open a chat in our assistance channel.
