Simple Code Snippets
If you’re someone that posts code in your posts now and then you have probably been looking for a nice Syntax Highlighter, or atleast something that didn’t mess up your posts. I was looking for the same but didn’t like all the heavyweight syntax highlighters, which sometimes didn’t even encode things the right way so I had to do things manually.
That’s why I decided to write a quick plugin for this, that shows your code (any code) like the WordPress Codex does. Simple, clean and very lightweight. The plugin uses just 10 lines of code, but does a perfect job.
To use this plugin you just have to wrap your code inside [ code ] and [ /code ] shortcodes. Here is an example of what the output look likes.
<?php //The Query query_posts('posts_per_page=5'); //The Loop if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); .. endwhile; else: .. endif; //Reset Query wp_reset_query(); ?>
You see? No encoding yourself, and you can use <?php and other stuff just fine. It’s also easy to copy for others, which isn’t always the case with most of the syntax highlighters that are out there.
