This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



This plugin escapes all text inside code tags so you don’t have to worry about converting code to HTML characters (e.g. >‘s to >‘s). The contents of code tags inside posts and comments are run through php’s htmlspecialchars.
