Nice formatting, but possible compatibility issues
By , for WP 3.9.1

The formatting and code grouping is nice, and it's attractive and easy to install and use. The problem is that, at least in my case, it's inserting extraneous linebreak tags as malformed HTML, which obviously creates problems with the theme that I'm using. Note that this may be the result of some interaction with the Visual Composer plugin that I'm using with the site, and it doesn't sound like it's a generally known issue.

Give it a try, but do thorough testing through all of your site (not just the pages where you're displaying code) to make sure that it's not causing a problem elsewhere, particularly if you're using a third-party visual designer plugin with your site.

Custom
By , for WP 3.9.1

Custom themes do not work.

When attempting to use a custom theme the highlighter breaks and simply shows as plain text.

I've tried importing the settings from existing themes and no matter what I try it simply will not work when a custom theme is selected.

It's perfect!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Everything works and very simple to set up and get started with, I was looking for the perfect syntax highlighting plugin for my needs and this does it all. Good themes to choose from and even customizable ones, easy to use within the visual editor too!

You can do better

Need to support more languages and add more flexibility on the custom theme page(tags,Unknown,comments...), but it still very useful and thanks for the great job

Doesn't work if the browser disables JavaScript
By , for WP 3.6

At least, it should highlight code even if the browser turns of JavaScript.
