FAQ

How do I get the best performance out of this plugin?

* Disable any syntax types that your blog doesn’t use, especially if you are only using a few of the syntax brushes.
* If your blog has a footer, you should enable the option to put the brushes in the footer.
* Also, if your blog has a footer, then Enable the automatic feature which will only include the language brushes that are referenced on each page of your blog.
