    Code syntax highlighting

    Hi,

    I've been browsing the BGE forums quite a bit, and one thing that bothers me is that although lot of scripts are passed around, the display is awful.

    I was wondering if there were options to highlight bits of code, and if not why not considering adding this kind of functionnality ? After a quick search I found this "mod".

    The BA forums have been up for so long now (years !), and it would kind of surprise me to not have such functionnality :)

    It would really help in Python related forums !

    I agree that syntax highlighting is extremely helpful (in all cases). As to why we don't have that mod installed... all I can say is that no one's ever requested it.

    May I request it ?

    Edit: although I have no idea how the CMS running BA works, I guessed it was vBulletin, and when briefly looking for a way to add it to the forums, I ended there: https://www.siteground.com/kb/how_to...ulletin_posts/. Hope it helps !

    I'm sure it's possible, just not necessarily a high priority at the moment. I'll ask about it.

    dont forget to ask for code tags icon in quick reply either
    '- It's not working' then check your console like: this
    Did you know that you can make a complete game with the .blends that i share?

    I'm back ! Just taking news.

    Because, I know things are happening and stuff, but how come a little feature like this is not looked at ?
    Are you heavily working on the forums to the point where this is truly not a priority ?

    Anyway, do what you have to :)

    I checked around. Because of the version of vBulletin that we're running, it turns out that it's not as small a task as I'd initially thought it would be.

    Ok ! Thanks for the feedback :)
    I think the way around is to host code either on gist.github or pasteall.org :P
