WP Chili


Easy code highlighting for WordPress with Chili (the bundled version is 2.2):

  1. Switch to the code tab
  2. Put your code snippet inside <code class="lang"></code> tags
  3. Replace the above lang with the language to highlight


  • <code class="php">echo "&lt;script&gt;alert( 'Hello ' + $name );&lt;/script&gt;";</code>
  • <code class="javascript">alert( 'Hello ' + $name );</code>


  • Put your code inside <pre><code class="lang"></code></pre> tags if you want to preserve white space
  • Add an “ln-” class to the <pre> element to add line numbers
  • Read the Chili site for many config options
  • In version 1.2, the file chili/recipes.js is the one which contains the recipes you need. So, add/remove recipes there if you need to. By default it contains html, css, javascript, and php


  1. Copy the wp-chili folder into your plugins folder
  2. Activate WP Chili
