It was great but developer seems to have abandoned it
By , for WP 4.2.4

For the longest time it was a great little plugin but it seems the developer has effectively abandoned it, there is absolutely no support for issues encountered and no way to contact the developer. The support thread on here is completely ignored and has no replies from the developer. It is a shame because I liked it despite the plugin's massive overhead.

For example the latest issue is an error that pops up for no good reason and there is no documentation on why it occurs or any way to ask the developer what's going on:

Fatal error: Out of memory (allocated 27262976) (tried to allocate 2877963 bytes) in /wp-content/plugins/crayon-syntax-highlighter/util/crayon_util.class.php on line 787

It makes absolutely no sense and there is no way to find out why its happening. Having to debug the code yourself and try to fix it is not appropriate as a plugin should not be released if you are not going to stay on top of it.

Fix it and provide better support and I would gladly change the rating.
