Support » Plugin: Crayon Syntax Highlighter » This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress.

  • This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

    Can the plugin get reviewed and maybe updated?
    Even if it’s just to raise the release number.
    I’m getting alerts and this would be considered GDPR incompliant 🙁 (and I like the plugin)

  • Crayon has nothing to do with GDPR, embedding Gists has

    How so, gists are already public?

    Because when you embed it into your website, you send the IP of the user to their server without his consent, which is problematic under GDPR, since the IP is considered personal data.

    But I would really help if we could keep using Crayon.

    my question about GDPR was referencing the OP @exitas comment
    “Can the plugin get reviewed and maybe updated?

    I see no relationship between the update status of a plugin ( this one ) and GDPR.

    On that basis, that it works, and it doesn’t have any known security issues, I can’t see why it can’t be still used?

    Oh, I see! Yea I agree, that shouldn’t be a problem. But building posts with an abandoned plugin is not so nice. Also there are bugs that will not be fixed anymore.

    The upside is that it uses standard html pre – tags and classes. So even if you remove the plugin it isn’t the world.

    and it does still work to a reasonable extent with the Gutenberg ‘code’ block too.

    Thinking about it the sensible thing to do would simply to lift the most common css styles and create a plugin that extends the Gutenberg code block. In terms of coding probably an easier way to get a long term supportable plugin.
