[Plugin: SyntaxHighlighter] Work with Windows Live Writer? (2 posts)

    Does anyone know how to get this plugin to work with Windows Live Writer? If I attempt to insert [sourcecode] tags in the Live Writer HTML view, it messes up the source code's formatting when the post is published.

    The only way I've been able to make this work is write and publish the post in Live Writer without any code tags. Then go login to my blog as Admin, edit the post in HTML mode, manually re-paste the source code into the post, and surround with [sourcecode] tags.

  2. Windows Live Writer is likely transforming your code into HTML entities so it'll display as you pasted it. Another reason I don't use a WYSIWYG editor. ;)
