Now that I’ve cozied up to Vim/VimRepress combo for posting to this
blog, there are a few things where I’m finding issues with posting code.
With straight wordpress.com, I used to be able to mark up code with the
[sourcecode][/sourcecode] tag and syntax highlighting comes in. With
markdown - indenting a block of code with 4 spaces renders it as a
<pre><code></code></pre> tags, but I don’t know if there’s a way to
let WP.com know what language it is or any way to use the
[sourcecode][/sourcecode] plugin from markdown.
Some googling on the topic didn’t result in any wp.com specific answers (some folks have posted on using other plugins et cetera with a self hosted Wordpress - but nothing for wordpress.com)
Any ideas/pointers? Guess I should also post the question on the Unix stackexchange
Update on 1/1/2012
sourcecode language="xxx" tag works - but you cant have any
empty lines in your source.
