Awesomeness ensued
By , for WP 3.5

Out of all the syntax highlighters that we tried (+10 of them) this is by far the best one we tried. the easiest to use, edit and maintain with other text - with a ton of customization if wanted. it evens worked with Advanced Custom Fields which was a huge plus.

Works perfectly and great user experience when adding code.
By , for WP 3.5

I try not to install many plugins, but had a need for a syntax highlighter. After looking at several plugins and the number of updates and author responses to support requests, I chose this one.

Great user experience adding the code insert button to the TinyMCE toolbar, easy peasy.

Thanks to the author for a great plugin and stellar support!

One of the best syntax highlight plugin out there
By , for WP 3.5.1

This is my favourite plugin as far as highlighting goes. Does an extremely good job at making the code look absolutely stunning and the toolbar it adds is extremely useful since it gives users extra options.

And the best part, the support. Having an active developer that is willing to listen to what the users want and try to resolve issues is always extremely important.

This Plugin does what it should do and supports many languages :)
For me is important the language Powershell.
Works fine with 3.5.0 and 3.5.1

Why load JS and CSS when not needed?
By , for WP 3.5.1

I'm OK with loading the massive amount of resources to use this plugin, but not on every page of my blog. If the plugin author would change this behavior, then I'd absolutely use it. As it is now, I just just can't use it.
