Preserve Code Formatting

Preserve formatting of code for display by preventing its modification by WordPress and other plugins while also retaining whitespace.

This plugin preserves formatting of code for display by preventing its modification by WordPress and other plugins while also retaining whitespace.

NOTE: Use of the visual text editor will pose problems as it can mangle your intent in terms of code tags. I strongly suggest you not use the visual editor in conjunction with this plugin as I have taken no effort to make the two compatible.

Notes:

Basically, you can just paste code into code, pre, and/or other tags you additionally specify and this plugin will:

  • Prevent WordPress from HTML-encoding text (i.e. single- and double-quotes will not become curly; "--" and "---" will not become en dash and em dash, respectively; "..." will not become a horizontal ellipsis, etc)
  • Prevent most other plugins from modifying preserved code
  • Prevent shortcodes from being processed
  • Optionally preserve whitespace (in a variety of methods)
  • Optionally preserve code added in comments

Keep these things in mind:

  • ALL embedded HTML tags and HTML entities will be rendered as text to browsers, appearing exactly as you wrote them (including any br tags).
  • By default this plugin filters 'the_content' (post content), 'the_excerpt' (post excerpt), and 'get_comment_text (comment content)'.

Example:

A post containing this within code tags:

$wpdb->query("
        INSERT INTO $tablepostmeta
        (post_id,meta_key,meta_value)
        VALUES ('$post_id','link','$extended')
");

Would, with this plugin enabled, look in a browser pretty much how it does above, instead of like:

$wpdb->query(—
INSERT INTO $tablepostmeta
(post_id,meta_key,meta_value)
VALUES ('$post_id','link','$extended')
―);
