HowTo show HTML / template code

Post by ghostrifle »

Hey there,

I'm setting up my ghost-machinery website at present. On this site, I'm giving some examples for all the modules I've coded. That's the reason why I have to show HTML / template code etc. Is there a way to show this code by inserting it on a content page, or does anyone know a tool for LINUX which converts HTML code to HTML -formatted code ;)

Hope you understand what I mean.


Bye, ghostrifle

I am not sure what you mean, but I think you want to show HTML code on the screen and wants to use the symbols "<" and ">" without having the browser convert it into real code.

This is done by writing the symbols "<" and ">" in this special way:

     
< is written with the code <       
> is written with the code >       

If you ex. wants to wite on the screen, you will have to write it like this:

Maybe this is something for you:

Or you can try to pack GeSHi (http://qbnz.com/highlighter/) into a cmsms plugin ;)
I'm currently trying to get GeSHi run with cmsms and make a highlighter plugin but it still won't work as i want it to do ;)

You are maybe looking for PHP functions highlight_file() or highlight_string()
