Source code styling

    Hi all,

    I just discovered that the sourcecode on my blog isn’t styled correctly anymore. I haven’t changed the posts in anyway and it was styled correctly in the past.

    The problem appears in Chrome as well as FireFox and IE. For about a second the grey hightling box is shown after it disappears again.

    I use [sourcecode language="csharp"] [/sourcecode] to mark content that is sourcecode.

    Could someone please point me in a direction how to fix this issue.

    Thank you

    The blog I need help with is



    What I know about writing source code and posting source code would be lonely on the head of a pin. I have tagged this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so your are notified when they respond.



    It’s working just fine for me.

    The grey box will appear for a few seconds while the syntax highlighter library is loaded.

    thank you for your replies. I’m a bit confused that it’s working with your browser.
    Are the line numbers shown? I’m using Chrome at version 26 but tried it with Firefox and IE as well.

    I can’t see any linenumbers except a zero before the last line.

    This really annoys me since my blog is about code. :-(




    You are absolutely right about the line numbers, I hadn’t noticed.

    We’re looking into this.



    It was an issue with the specific theme you were using (it was hiding the line numbers by mistake). We’ve made a fix to the theme and line numbers should be showing up one again for you.

    Thanks for the bug report!




    thank you very much for this quick solution.

    It’s all beautiful again. ;-)

    Thanxs again!!!
