I tried to find syntaxhighlighter for WordPress a lot of times. All my attempts didn’t give me a simple result.

For many plugins user has to use special syntax like [css]…[/css] or [php]…[/php]. Sometime syntaxhighlighter works only with classes of syntax like <… class=”css”>. So plugins like Syntax Highlighter MT, WP Code Highlight, CodeColorer don’t work well.

I thought about some JavaScript highlighter like Prism but it has the same problem as previous plugins.Till yesterday I used code block without any highlighter and now I found Code Prettify plugin. It’s very simple and easy plugin without line numbers or extra code.

Code Prettify is not alternative to standard <pre> tag. It’s just nice bonus.
