The apostrophe should be straight not curly in WordPress.

Just Open your functions.php file from your theme folder. If you did not created functions.php file then you can paste this code in your header.php file.

remove_filter(‘comment_text’, ‘wptexturize’);
remove_filter(‘the_title’, ‘wptexturize’);
remove_filter(‘the_content’, ‘wptexturize’);

This will solve your problem
