Syntax highlighter stopped working quite some time ago. CodeBox Plus was a good replacement, But with the latest upgrade it no longer works! I need an extension that will highlight the syntax of various programming languages and keep the formatting of code (just using BBCode strips out any indentation which is very annoying.) I so hope somebody is working on a syntax highlighting extension!
The only thing that's not working in 3.2 is the download function. If anyone would share an idea on how to get around that, or an inkling on how that behaviour would have changed between 3.1 and 3.2, I would be ever so grateful
sorry I'm new to phpBB, but I have installed both extensions described in this thread, both are enabled, and yet when I try to post code (.c, for example) there is no syntax highlighting at all. What - presumably very basic - am I missing? Thanks in advance for your time!
Thanks for your reply. I have used the [code] tags, and in ACP I find Extensions only under the Customize tab (3rd from last, I use version 3.2.1), but there is no other option than enable/disable, no specific settings for Codebox Plus. And I am not familiar at all with [Codebox=] tags. Again, I apologize for my ignorance, but I need to get this done for my employer, who wants to host his own forum with this specific requirement.
Also, if you're setting this up for someone else I'd definitely go with Kinerity's linked extension rather than Codebox Plus.
The former is super simple and straightforward to figure out should anything go awry, and it doesn't change anything to how you would post code compared with a standard phpBB install - it just post-highlights what's already there.
The latter is great when you get it to work and has neat features, but is not maintained or actively supported.
Can anyone explain to me how to add up a download feature in the Codebox Plus extension for phpBB 3.2?
I also noticed that in phpBB 3.2, the Codebox Plus forces to skip one line between each two adjacent lines of code creating unnecessary white spaces in the code, does anyone know how to fix this problem as well?
