This is simple wordpress plugin for highlight.js library. Highlight.js highlights syntax in code examples on blogs, forums and in fact on any web page

3.6 out of 5 stars
By , for WP 4.0

So simple to use and does produce pretty colourful and easy to read code blocks. Gave it a 4 as it can be a bit fiddly with line breaks, but really don't let that stop you using it.

Just missing an option to escape angle brackets
By , for WP 3.9

Plugin should give an option escape angle brackets with < and > when you want to display them literally in XML/HTML markup.

Errors on each page
By , for WP 3.6.1

да бля, конечно совместим с 3.6.1. Вот как теперь откатить до предыдущей версии, чтобы ошибки не выкидывало постоянно?

Похоже, что теперь конфликтует со всеми моими плагинами: с одними выдает ошибки только в панели администратора, а например с math captcha ошибки выводятся везде

И даже в wordpress сейчас не могу перейти на произвольную страницу в панели администратора - если ввожу сразу номер. Так что с 3.6.1 никаким боком не совместимо

good enough for me
By , for WP 3.5.1

- light weight
- detects most automatically
- can be used with shortcodes - big plus
- can be upgraded to latest highlight js lib from the orig js creator
The Bad:
1. no line numbering
2. no alternative highlight
3. if used for html code that also has some xml style elements there are some formatting issues.

Four Stars because it is good enough for me. No 1, 2 don't need for light weight occasional code that I reference, and no 3 can be formatted as css or someth as a workaround, hence the -1 star.

works, looks nice, simple, portable
By , for WP 3.4.2

I switched from "SyntaxHighlighter Evolved" to "Crayon" to "wp-highligher.js".

The highligher.js solution simply works. ... has a nice clean look ... and, is portable as pure javascript/css across my non-WordPress HTML5 pages.

I also customized to the languages in the wp-highligher.js installation from here
