  • Resolved jlengrand


    Hi all,

    Since this morning, the SyntaxHighlighter Evolved won’t work on my website anymore.
    I don’t know what happened exactly, but deactivating, reinstalling and using an old version of my css stylesheet did not solve the problem.

    You can see what happens here :
    The only noticable thing I did was to install/remove the Front Page Excluded Categories plugin. (

    When using firefox developer tools, I got this error :

    Error: SyntaxHighlighter is not defined
    Source File:
    Line: 960

    which highlights this line :
    SyntaxHighlighter.config.clipboardSwf = '';

    I checked and the .swf file is present.

    Would you have any ideas that could solve the issue?
    I am pretty inexperienced with php, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks by advance !

    I guess you fixed it? It seems to be working fine for me. 🙂

    If not, clear your browser cache.

    Hi Alex,

    Thanks for the message.
    I finally fixed the message indeed (as you may ahve seen on my blog :p).

    The problem was (and is still) coming from a plugin called jetpack, and especially its gravatar part.

    A misplaced comment blocked a </script> tag, and it was disbling the syntax highlighter javascript code. . .

    I sent a mail to the dev team of jetpack, but still did not get any answer. I ‘ll let you know 😉

    Weird, I run Jetpack on my site and have the Gravatar module enabled. Hmm.

    Wierd indeed.

    I send a mail to Jetpack support some days ago but did not get any answer yet.

    Aniyway, I’m currently trying to reduce the number of plugins I use and enhance the time load of the blog.
    So Jetpack is not part oy my activated plugins anymore :).
