Really great plugin. Simple to use, pretty on the front end, and responsive. Tons of settings to choose from. Great job!

Works in editor, not on post... :(

I am giving it 3 stars because what I do see in the editor looks really good. Unfortunately, in the post it's just the [crayon...] shortcodes...

Will try to use again if this works on my system...


A lot's of functions and easy to use
By , for WP 3.7.1

I'm using syntax highlighters for several years now and this plugin is the best one if you need a tool for your WordPress website.

I really like the way it works:

1. Adding mixed HTML/PHP code from the WYSISYG interface
2. All the JS/CSS code libs are only included if you use the syntax highligting feature

Great, one of the best plugin's I've ever seen!

The best syntax highlighter available
By , for WP 3.7.1

This is the best syntax highlighter plugin by far.
It has a lot of options, languages and the final result is very clean and readable.

Best of the Bunch
By , for WP 3.6.1

I've tried many syntax highlighters. Crayon seems to be the best - many features, easy to install, and works very well (so far ; )

You can even override global settings for individual 'Crayons' [pieces of highlighted code] such as disabling line numbers for specific 'Crayons' with attribute settings.

There's even a "Tag Editor" that lets you do that attribute setting using a simple dialog ... and much, much more ... all-in-all an excellent, very useful and feature filled plugin for WordPress.

Smooth and clever

I just installed the plugin and it looks great. I am really looking forward to using this! The possibility of creating my own themes is great too.

Übernimmt sogar alte Syntax-Codes problemlos. Viele individuelle Einstellungsmöglichkeiten.

Just really nice

Solid. That's how I'd describe it. My favorite feature is the variety of themes.
