Code formatting in WordPressPosted: 2016-02-01
When I post the contents of a configuration file or want to write a command, I prefer the text to have the appropriate formatting. Enclosing the text in [cоde][/cоde] tags is a well known feature of WordPress, however I keep forgetting some of the options.
Therefore, I am going to paste the parameters from the link above, listing them for my future reference:
- autolinks (true/false) — Makes all URLs in your posted code clickable. Defaults to true.
- collapse (true/false) — If true, the code box will be collapsed when the page loads, requiring the visitor to click to expand it. Good for large code posts. Defaults to false.
- firstline (number) — Use this to change what number the line numbering starts at. It defaults to 1.
- gutter (true/false) — If false, the line numbering on the left side will be hidden. Defaults to true.
- highlight (comma-seperated list of numbers) — You can list the line numbers you want to be highlighted. For example “4,7,19”.
- htmlscript (true/false) — If true, any HTML/XML in your code will be highlighted. This is useful when you are mixing code into HTML, such as PHP inside of HTML. Defaults to false and will only work with certain code languages.
- language (specify) — controls how the code is syntax highlighted
- light (true/false) — If true, the gutter (line numbering) and toolbar (see below) will be hidden. This is helpful when posting only one or two lines of code. Defaults to false.
- padlinenumbers (true/false/integer) — Allows you to control the line number padding. true will result in automatic padding, false will result in no padding, and entering a number will force a specific amount of padding.
- title (string) — Set a label for your code block. Can be useful when combined with the collapse parameter.
Many languages are supported and I have put in bold the ones I had used:
