Content - Code Hightlighter (GeSHi) Question

Postby psgeeks » Fri Nov 30, 2007 5:24 am

Hi all,

I have activated the plugin but can't understand how it works.  I know it is supposed to Highlight the code inside of an article but I do have code alot of my articles but nothing is getting highlighted.

Do i need to encapsulate the code with something? Can you tell me what i'm doing wrong?

Thanks  ???

Did you try enclosing your code in
code goes here
statements?

I *think* that is how it works.

I have done that, but no colors though! - does it recognize some languages and not others?

The following post lists a few different language commands for GeSHi,
http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic ... #msg271080

That should provide the examples necessary for determining how to get correct highlighting for any language you are using.

Still not clear for me how to use it....

With which editor should I do it? Can I do it with TinyMCE 2.0?

Can someone please give more details?

But if I deactivate TinyMCE 2.0 I get this error when I access an article:

Warning: Attempt to assign property of non-object in C:\Archivos de programa\xampp\htdocs\xampp\Joomla1.5\libraries\joomla\html\editor.php on line 303

Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in C:\Archivos de programa\xampp\htdocs\xampp\Joomla1.5\plugins\editors\tinymce.php on line 58

What editor should I have on? Can you please give more details?

Edit your user, the parameter "User Editor" must be "Editor - No editor" or something similar to this, I have Joomla! in spanish and I think that in English y similar to this.

An spanish example here:

http://tengu.dnsdojo.org/component/cont ... 201.5.html

This is the most important

Code: Select all

<pre xml:lang="ruby">puts "Hello World!"</pre>


ruby is the language you whis, attention whit de xml:lang, before was lang only

It worked with

<pre xml:lang="php">puts "Hello World!"</pre>

because ruby does not come by default installed.

How to have the same highlight we have here in the forum?

I am having this same issue. I have it activated GeSHI but it is not highlighting anything. When I had 1.5, it worked. But in the new version 2.X, it's not highlighting anything. I thought it used to work with the editor on. I use the code window a lot but it is easier to catch spelling errors with the editor. This forum also works with the editor since I used it to type this message.

In your font code of your articles change all this labels:

Code: Select all

<pre lang="ruby">puts "Hello World!"</pre>

To:

Code: Select all

<pre xml:lang="ruby">puts "Hello World!"</pre>

The lang attribute change to xml:lang

This is all you need to do.

Sorry my bad english.

Where exactly do I go? I searched the files and the code isn't in the host. So are they in the admin window? Sorry to be stupid.

webgal, you have to open html code to add that.

Anyone knows how to change the background color of geshi code?

What I'm looking for is what file is that code found in.

For example, is it rhuk_milkyway/html/modules.php. I know it's not in that file. But I don't know which file that code is in.

This is not in a file. You should create a new article, and while editing the article you have a button to edit the article in html mode. It is a button close to the bold, italic and all these buttons in the tinyMCE editor.

OK. That is more clear. I use the html window most of the time. I assume this is something I add to all the articles if I want the geshi.

I forgot to say thank you. So thank you. Off to give it a go.
