FAQ

How to highlight inline element

It’s simple.

If you write inline [code][/code] – it will be displayed inline.

In case you put in one and more linebreaks “\n” – it will be displayed as block element.

Can I use this plugin with other syntax highlight?

You may do what you want, but plugins author doesn’t promise that any other syntax highlight plugin will work correctly with the original one.

Is it possible to add more capatibilites to this plugin?

Of course. Write me to info@wpthy.com with subject “Feature request for Easy Prism Syntax Highlighter plugin” a letter and make request.

Hi WordPress community, This plugin is outdated and isn't compatible with the latest WP versions. I recently installed it and worked correctly on posts but crashed some parts of my theme, hence I recommend not to use this plugin. It adds unnecessary <p> tags everywhere.
