[code]syntax highlighting[/code]

Postby hrs » Sat Feb 16, 2013 11:00 pm

It would be nice to have syntax highlighting for code posted in code tags. There is something called php-geshi which was originally written for phpbb but is now a separate project. Or something. I don't know if that's an appropriate package or if it's difficult / a lot of work to install and configure, but anyway some form of syntax highlighting would be nice.

I wholeheartedly endorse this suggestion. I too, however, have no clue how much trouble it would take to add, but I think it would be worth it.

No direct knowledge of phpBB here, but it seems like its a fairly common feature for forums to support some sort of syntax highlighting in conjunction with the code tag... sadly its almost always php-specific, but it'd be a nice helper feature.
