Minimalistic Syntax Highlighter plug-in which also makes sure code can still be copied and pasted into your favourite compiler!


Whenever you want to post some syntax highlighted code, surround it with <code lang="language"></code>. That's it.


<code lang="php">
class HelloWorld()
    public function __construct()
        echo "This is an unnecessarily long version of Hello World";

The 'lang' attribute can be entirely omitted. You will get whitespace, quotes and dashes preservation... but no highlighting.


Just deactivate the plug-in, and remove its folder from the wp-content/plugins directory.

The following plug-ins were invaluable sources of inspiration and how-to-do-it-right:

You could say this plug-in is the sum of the essence of both plug-ins.
