Better than "Code Snippets" even though it has less downloads

I find this much easier to use. This one has an easy way of inserting your C# code into your posts without any rocket science. I believe the top choice right now only supports PHP code.

Good start, but very basic.

I'm in the process of finding a good, self hosted, source code snippet library so I checked this WP addon out;

It allows you to add snippets, but that's roughly about it. I'd like it to be more robust like a real snippet manager. i.e. ability to add tags to each snippet, notes to each snippet (that aren't in the code's actual comments), file attachments in case I want to add full on c#/vb.net forms, categories, link(s) per snippet (linking to a full reference page for example), etc.

A good idea would be to look at offline snippet managers like Source Code Library, and/or QSnipps and include all of their features.

Good but needs some fixes

Awesome plugin except it has some bugs that are messing with the html output and if you are experiencing any strange admin issues it's probably this plugin. See my post here because this occurs on all all versions as far as I'm aware.

This is the best code snippet plugin ever!

I was searching for such a plugin, since my blog mostly revolves around programming. Since it's bilingual, I was looking for a way to write each snippet only once, so that each article could share it with its translation. This plugin did the trick!

The ability to execute snippets came as a bonus. This article executes the very same code it displays. Smooth!

Rendering needs some improvement, IMHO, but that's rather minor.

Keep up the good work!

Great for sharing CSS/HTML code snippets

Just installed this for my latest post where I had to show off more code than usual and it works just like expected. You can create new snippets and easily reference them in your posts using the shortcode listed in the Code Snippets screen. Neat!

I only have two small nitpicks:

1. There was some CSS bleed which caused the box to be way too high. It seems as if each line is always 18px tall but the line height is not enforced. I fixed it by adding line-height: 18px; to .ace_editor.

2. Since I added the snippet through the Code Snippets editor I was first confused about how to actually reference the snippet in the post. Turns out _there is_ a way to add/insert snippets from the editor, but it's only visible in the Visual editor. Since you're inserting content in my mind it would make more sense if it was simply a button right next to the Upload Media button above the editor altogether.

Great job!
