    I've noticed there are a lot of folks here looking for working syntax highlighter. Unfortunately all I've tried from the Plugins channel was bogus or not working or pretty damn hard to get working.

    Since I don't have the time to get familiar with the plugins here and to make new one, here is simple tutorial how to get a syntax highlighter working along your BBCode plugin.

    Remember to follow instructions carefully and keep a running backup.

    1 >_: Download jquery-syntaxhighlighter.zip
    2 >_: Extract it as following into


    so that path should look like


    3 >_: Open your bbcode.js . It's in directory addons/plugins/BBCode/resources/bbcode.js and add the following after the existing code:

    $(document).ready(function() {
    		'debug': false,
    		'alternateLines': true,
    		'prettifyBaseUrl': ET.webPath + '/addons/plugins/BBCode/resources/jquery-syntaxhighlighter/prettify',
    		'baseUrl': ET.webPath + '/addons/plugins/BBCode/resources/jquery-syntaxhighlighter'

    4 >_: Open plugin.php . It's in directory addons/plugins/BBCode/plugin.php
    Find the row:


    Add before:


    Find the row:

    $sender->content = preg_replace("/<pre><\/pre>/ie", "'<pre>' . array_pop(\$this->blockFixedContents) . '</pre>'", $sender->content);

    In the row find: '<pre>' and replace it with '<pre class=\"highlight\">'

    Delete cache and refresh

    It's just a fix thanks to samsong just made few edits to get the code working on the latest version.

    Hope it will help someone.

    Best wishes,
