Wanted (source)code plugin for WordPress

The past days I’ve been posting stories with a few code samples – Perl, PHP, Javasscript and/or HTML. While WordPress is fantastic to a number of things, handling sourcecode examples in the posts, reallly isn’t one of them.

I’ve been playing with a number of plugins, but none of them really works for me. What I’m looking for is this:

  • It must be able to handle HTML, Javasscript, PHP and Perl sourcecode.
  • The code samples should work with the visual editor (preferably entered in this, but ”code mode” is quite alright) – Visual post editing shouldn’t break the code example.
  • The plugin should be alive (maintained and tested with recent wordpress releases).

I would have thought it would have been easy to find a plugin that covered the above requirements, but so far I’ve had very little luck – any suggestions?

    I’m just getting into using WP and though I can answer your question, i was hoping to get your feedback into the difference of using WP verse Drupal, any suggestions to using one over the other?

  • I’m not quite sure how much sense it makes to compare the two systems – it’s Apple and Oranges. Sure you can use Drupal for a blog and sure WordPress might be twisted into acting like a generic CMS.

    If you need more than a blog, Drupal could be the way to go, but it’s certainly more complex and a bigger mouthful than “just” wordpress. I’m currently on wordpress, but some of the things I’m thinking about in terms of extending and rebuilding this site, may make it worth switching to Drupal – but it’s certainly not to get another blogging engine.
