I’ve had the unpleasant experience of having to play and experiment with syntax highlighting plugins for any code I’d like to post on here and other blogs. Unfortunately, there’s a ton of options to choose from and many just aren’t up to scratch.
What’s worse is that some have funny syntaxes such as using <pre class=”language”> tags which are easily broken by the wordpress WYSIWYG editor and your code gets mangled. Not only that, but changing over to a better plugin becomes a tedious task if you have to change all those pre tags to shorttags.
I’d like to recommend a plugin which works very well, called SyntaxHighliter Plus by Fred Wu and other contributors. In my opinion, it’s one of the easier plugins to use and makes posting code a breeze.Read More

OK, so this is pretty unrelated to websites, but it must be said. Like many people, I use skype on almost a daily basis. The quality of calls is good and the features it packs are enough to get me by.
However, things change when it comes to the paid service. Who would have thought things stop working once you actually pay?
Last week, I bought an online number and tried to assign it to myself within the business panel. To my surprise, after buying this number I discover that I can’t assign it to my account, as my account details say “You cannot assign online numbers to this member”. Hmm…. thanks for warning me before I bought it!Read More
Update: As of BuddyPress 1.1 this can be done via the wordpress aministration area. You can find this in BuddyPress > General Settings on the left side menu.
Those that use BuddyPress along with their WordPress MU installation may have found some limitations with the xprofiles. BuddyPress Devs have improvements listed as an upcoming feature, but in the meantime some things need to be fixed NOW!
One particular feature I needed to get round was the fact that you can’t change the default “Name” field. Whilst very common to have this as a field in most installations, we should at least be able to edit the field names the user sees, but unfortunately this is not so.Read More
