Now posting sourcecode is easy on wordpress blogs.This is possible using sourcecode shortcode.You just wrap your code in [-sourcecode] and you’re good to go — no code escaping or anything.

The language parameter controls how the code is syntax highlighted. The following languages are supported:

  • actionscript3
  • bash
  • coldfusion
  • cpp
  • csharp
  • css
  • delphi
  • erlang
  • diff
  • groovy

  • perl
  • php
  • text
  • powershell

If the language parameter is not set, it will default to “text” (no syntax highlighting).

Code in between the source code tags will automatically be encoded for display, you don’t need to worry about HTML entities or anything.
