- Activate from Manage filters.
Since this is a 3rd party plugin, any change requests that relate to the the styles and features of the highlighting should be directed to the plugin author.
Before you ask...
Can I specify which language I'm using?
You don't need to, the plugin detects that itself. However, you can choose the language by adding it after the backticks. e.g.
echo "My PHP code";
Or, by adding it to the <code> class attribute:
<pre><code class="lang-php">echo "My PHP code";</code></pre>
Can I have line numbering?
Can I use some other highlighting plugin?
I might implement the option of using various hightlighting plugins in the future - such as GeSHi. But this suits my needs for now. You're welcome to do a pull request with any adaptions you would like to add.
