[Resolved] [Plugin: Crayon Syntax Highlighter] Unable to save post – get 404 errors

Viewing 7 replies - 1 through 7 (of 7 total)
  • Actually, some of my code snippets will go in, but others will not.

    This will not work … add it and I get a 404 error.

    [crayon lang="js"]<div id="fb-root"></div>
    <script>(function(d, s, id) {
      var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];
      if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
      js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id;
      js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js#xfbml=1&appId=YOURFACEBOOKAPPID";
      fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);
    }(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));</script>[/crayon]

    Also, is there a way to wrap the lines? Can’t figure that out…


    Here is a text file with the full post I’m trying to save or publish. Tried in a basic site and deactivating all plugins – still no joy.

    It must be the way I’m adding the shortcode?

    Thanks for that, sorry I didn’t see this sooner. I’ll need to see if there’s an email notification for newly added topics… There sure is a better way now! Use the tag editor button (<>) in the visual editor, or the “crayon” button in the HTML editor. I prefer using the visual editor now, since this integrates nicely and you can even type. When you select a pre tag (which is what it creates Crayons as) it will highlight blue and you can edit the code and settings in tag editor – the same window that you use to create Crayons. You can even switch between HTML and Visual modes and it should all just work.

    Oh, and with the tag editor this won’t apply since < is encoded to & lt; but if you use plugins that let you put PHP code into posts, then the code in the Crayon may turn into PHP code and cause issues. I had an issue with PHP Exec like this, but like I said with the Tag Editor it won’t apply.

    Also, that post text works fine for me:


    And if you have HTML and PHP in the same document and want to highlight both, then set the language to html to allow the bits between PHP tag to be rendered as html and bits inside php tags to be php.

    akarmenia: This is the issue that I discussed with you via email and it is now resolved.

    It was a server setting issue in ModSec … not allowing this to work. The server config was changed to allow this by my host.

    Oh right, sorry Steve I didn’t recognise your username 🙂
