    I really can’t tell which to use. Yours is newer, but I don’t know a lot about how the two compare. I figure I’ll ask you since you probably know best at this point.

    Thank you.


    I’d say that’s a difficult choice. Both have similar functionality, if not same. Please check out both and see how each fares and let everyone know. :) I’d recommend SyntaxHighlighter2.


    Ah.. I figured it was 50/50 on which one you built off from. You both had the same info on the extension pages. I’ll test eventually, but I’m still sorting through plugins, picking ones to test. I was secretly hoping that you built off from plus, because that would make it an easier choice. Yours is active though, so I’m sure I will end up using it.

    I didn’t see a change log or anything for yours, but for the record, theirs says they added the following:

    Valid XHTML markup

    Background expand fix

    Corrected Overflow issues

    More syntax variants


    SyntaxHighlighter2 is based on SyntaxHighlighter. Invalid XHTML markup was a defect in SyntaxHighlighter and fixed in SyntaxHighlighter2. SyntaxHighlighter2 has more syntax variants compared to SyntaxHighlighter. However I need to address the overflow issue, see http://mohanjith.net/blog/2008/01/automagically-ping-blog-search-engines.html Line 51 (in the code snippet).

    @AllRoCol thank you very much for posting your findings, much appreciated.
