Plugin Code

This wiki plugin is used to display any source code (including wiki syntax) on a page without it being processed. The code is displayed in a gray box in a fixed-width monospaced font. A title can be added to the box and line numbers added. Syntax highlighting is also available, since Tiki7 using CodeMirror and using GeSHi before that.


Introduced in Tiki 1.

Syntax highlighting

To activate syntax highlighting, the Syntax Highlighting feature must be set at Control Panels > Editing and Plugins > General Settings (tab) > Features (pane).

See the list of CodeMirror supported languages that can be used for the colors parameter.


If you need a mode that keeps tab spacing, you can use, for instance, mode scss.


\n"; } {CODE}

Would produce:

if($menu->link != "") {
    print "\t
\n"; }

PHP with line numbers

This code:

if($menu->link != "") {
    print "\t
\n"; $menu->printMenu(); print "\t \n"; $menu->printMenu(); print "\t

Tiki syntax highlighting

Tiki syntax is supported too.
This code:

{img attId="57|58|59" desc="desc" alt="Sample Images"  thumb="y" stylebox="float: left; margin-right:10px"}

Would produce:

{img attId="57|58|59" desc="desc" alt="Sample Images"  thumb="y" stylebox="float: left; margin-right:10px"}

Legacy GeSHi Documentation (deprecated in Tiki8)


Installing GeSHi

Since GeSHi has been licensed under GPL - which is incompatible with Tiki's LGPL license - the administrator will need to manually download a copy of GeSHI. It appears the project now uses GitHub for the repository.
Once you have you copy of Geshi, you should place it in your own tiki's lib/geshi/ directory, so that once placed there the folder structure is something like:


You could alternatively install the stable version of GeSHI with the Debian/Ubuntu package php-geshi (check if the version of the package is fresh enough for your needs, compared to the latest stable from their website or subversion repository).

Supported languages

To be certain which languages your installation of GeSHi covers, check the language files in directory where GeSHi was installed. See the this GitHub repository language folder for example.

The exact name of the language file (without the .php extension) is used to specify the language in the colors parameter.
