  1. The plugin works in comments (as above).

    Sadly, my CSS for the comment area needs a little work and it shows.


  2. I agree with you that on some sites syntax coloring looks out of place. I use wp-syntax plugin myself and just like you said, it adds a lot of inline styles to the code snippet. According to plugin notes – “It also uses inline styling to make sure that code highlights still work in RSS feeds”. I was wondering if you know about any syntax highlighting plugins that let you change code colors?


  3. It uses GeSHi and I think you can customize the syntax coloring, but it is tough. There is a file for filtering php text (and others) in the component directory. Look for the styles array near the end of that file.


  4. I have been looking at SyntaxHighlighter Plus lately.

    This syntax highlighter uses javascript to do the dirty work, thereby leaving the code preserved as written in the Html. The highlighter comes with Css stylesheets, so appears to be easily modified.

    I have very less knowledge about editing the plugins. Learning from some tutorials. I’ll post some comments once i learn it in a better way. Is there any tutorials available for installation?


  6. @Harveen – There are tutorials all over the web. I do not have any here, yet.

    You can also dig thru the WordPress Codex, too.
