SyntaxHighlighter Plus and Greater Than Replacement (8 posts)

    I am running SyntaxHighlighter Plus so that I can post code boxes. WordPress is replacing certain characters with & definitions and not displaying those characters under certain circumstances. I am seeking a way to remedy this situation.

    Here is an example:

    http://www.soundunreason.com/InkWell/?p=2313

    The code includes the standard BASH error redirection in line 7 ( 2> ) but as you can see in the post it is converted to 2> and not reconverted in the displayed post. Lines 4 and 5 contain some greater than symbols which are converted (in the backend) and reconverted in the displayed post.

    How can I ensure that all instances of greater than in code blocks are displayed as the symbol?

    Um, that should read more like "... as you can see in the post it is converted to 2_&_g_t_; and not reconverted...". (Thanks, WordPress.)

    Sorry I moved some of the comments around for clarity.

    The problem child is now in line 9 and it is lines 5 and 7 that contain the & definitions which are working.

    Um, is there no one who can contribute positively on this matter?

    So, I have narrowed down the problem. Not that anyone around here seems to care, mind you.

    If the greater than symbol is in a comments line (any line preceded by # while in BASH code for instance) the symbol is changed to its & code at Save and rendered correctly when viewed as a post.

    If the greater than symbol is in a line of actual code the symbol is changed to its & code at Save but NOT rendered as a greater than symbol when live (you see the full & code instead).

    By chance, anyone have any suggestions?

    Seriously? Nobody uses this?

    Ok, so which plugin should I be using if no one is using this one?
