Adding Code To Wordpress Blogs And Comments

Thursday, February 5, 2009 - 18:03

Wordpress is a pretty neat blogging platform, but it falls over quite spectacularly when trying to write code in posts. I write a lot of code for #! code and so I have understand what needs to be encoded to make code examples work.

For code example on #! code I use the <code> tag and I encode the following characters.

  • < into &lt;
  • > into &gt;
  • " into &quot;
  • ' into &#39;

Note: You must be in HTML mode in your Wordpress editor or everything will be double encoded.
