Syntax Highlight Code in WordPress Posts

From time to time I post code snippets in blog posts. Today I found a wordpress plugin, Code Snippet 2.0, a plugin that eases code posting by escaping the the code right. And moreover Code Snippet 2.0 displays the code with highlighting. The plugin uses GeSHi syntax highlighter engine – a flexible and easy extendable highlighter engine.

Install

  • Download the plugin here
  • Copy archive to wp-content/plugins directory
  • Extract the zip file
  • When extracted properly you should have a directory structure like: /wp-content/plugins/codesnippet
  • Enable the Plugin in WP-admin

Usage

<code lang="php">
< ?php
echo "Hello World";
?>
</code>

Result:

< ?php
echo "Hello World";
?>

The list of supported languages in Code Snippet 2.0:
