I just installed SyntaxHighlighter Evolved - fabulous plugin. I'm having a couple problems, however.
First, sometimes when I paste code into the visual editor (tinyMCE) in WordPress and save, it changes the paragraph style to Preformatted. Switching between Visual and HTML view doesn't show any differences between the code. I find this rather disconcerting. What is it doing exactly? I coudn't find any discussion on this at all, either on the plugin page on wordpress.org or on the author's plugin page.
Second, I'm trying to blog about this plugin, but I can't figure out how to insert square brackets along with the shortcodes. When I use &# 91; and &# 93; (with no spaces, of course) and switch between Visual and HTML view, it converts them to [ and ] respectively. If I can't use the character code, how do I prevent WordPress from treating it like a shortcode?
