Syntax Highlighter Success

Finally, I managed to get SyntaxHighlighter working.

I had tried a few things previously, but it seems that some of the tutorials I had seen were based on older versions. The joy arrived when I found this post.

Now I can post code snippets in a way which is actually readable!


SELECT
COUNT(dbid) as TotalConnections
FROM
sys.sysprocesses
WHERE
dbid > 0

Hurrah!

I'm still using Stanley Shilov's utility to escape my HTML so that I can post using these simple tags:


<pre class="brush: html">
</pre>

But, it doesn't work now because Alex Gorbatchev would like a donation to keep development of his project active. I had the same problem but I changed to WordPress.com where Syntax Highlighter is included using sourcecode tags (between square brackets) with the adequate filter for any laguage. For example, in python is:

[sourcecode language="py"]
.
.
.
your code here
.
.
.
[/sourcecode]

Have a nice day!

That's interesting - thanks for the information.

I'll check it out since I did notice that some of the JS behaviour had stopped working...
