CC-Syntax-Highlight

Description

The CC-Syntax-Highlight plugin supports syntax highlighting of Posts, Pages, and any public Custom Post Types.
It uses highlight.js or google-code-prettify libraries.
Additionally it can use the clipboard.js library to add a button that copies text to the clipboard.
It is delivered with support for shortcode (default [code] – you can change it on the settings page) which automatically converts all special characters to HTML entities.
This plugin is compatible with Multisite WordPress installations.

How does it work?

  1. Go to the ‘Settings > Syntax Highlight’ page, select your preferred options and save them.
  2. Simply add the source code to your post (or other selected public Custom Post Type) wrapped with:
    <pre><code>Your source code</code></pre>
    or if you would like to automatically convert all special characters to HTML entities, use shortcode wrapper instead (default [code] – you can change it on the settings page):
    <pre>[code]Your source code[/code]</pre>

Plugin’s js scripts and css styles files only load if the source code occurs on displaying page.

Reviews

Finally, some that understands custom post types

I was surprised how hard it was to find a plugin with a nice theme (Github) which also has a custom post type selection and is super lightweight (not loading 4+ files like some do). It also is responsive, making this plugin pretty much perfect. Just hope the dev keeps it up to date.
