Is it possible to get syntax highlightning in forum posts? We are developers and would like to copy paste code in to forum posts and keep the formatting and colors, syntax and so on.
Something like this: http://forums.webwiz.net/incorrect-syntax-near-10_topic27610. - http://forums.webwiz.net/incorrect-syntax-near-10_topic27610.html

The post that you link to I would imagine that the persons has either copied and pasted the code already with the colour formatting or they have used the post editor to select the colours for the text.

Syntax highlighting would be a big project to undertake. Web Wiz Forums already used [ code ] [/ code ] BBCodes for the posting of code with in posts.

I would say that the best approach would be to develop this further to parse the text within the BBCode [ code ] [/ code ] area once submitted to add HTML colouring to certain words.

You would also need to build a list of words for the languages that you wish to use that syntax highlighting would be applied to.

It would be a large project to develop, probably taking a few weeks of development and testing to get it working correctly.
