Standardise on "URLs" without apostrophe in docs #6018

I was browsing the Jekyll docs earlier ( and noticed you were using a mixture of "URLs", "URL’s" (with curly quote) and "URL's" (with straight quote).

Apostrophes are unnecessary when pluralising acronyms,[1][2] and avoiding them also makes it easier for readers less familiar with the English language.

So I’ve replaced URL\S?s with URLs across the docs directory, and History.markdown. There was no need to change any of the Ruby code files.

I hope I’ve correctly followed all the guidelines for contributing to Jekyll – but if there’s anything you’d like me to change, let me know. 👍

Thanks @zarino for helping us improving documentation.

History is automatically generated from commits messages but from now on we'll try to stick to this convention.
