Code editor highlighted in WordPress

The text editor, or HTML, of WordPress is fine but lacks the ease of use of any external code editor, such as colored syntax or shortcut keys to save changes, for example.

But that's over, and if you do not want to wait for a full revision of the WordPress ticket editor you can install the plugin HTML editor syntax highlighter which replaces the text editor WordPress for an improved version much improved.

In addition to a new full screen mode incorporates some buttons to add new HTML tags (quicktags), such as headings h1, h2, h3, and even one for comment code.

Also, number the lines of code and you can even save the changes to the entry with the key combination Command + S (on Mac) or Control + S (on Windows), and when the cursor is over it's where You left it.

WordPress Syntax mode for Panic CODA • WordPress Help

If you do not know the application Panic CODA you're probably missing what might be the best software that exists for a web programmer .

In fact, there's Web developers who have switched to Mac "only" to use CODA . And it's not crazy, there are really many reasons to switch to Mac but using CODA is one of them, and powerful. But hey, it's not about doing proselytizing for Mac or CODA.

What I want to share with you today is a download file that allows to use the WordPress syntax in CODA to identify the codes of your WordPress themes and plugins, its functions in particular, and it allows you things like the autocomplete syntax and those wonderful things that CODA does .

Now CODA will already identify the WordPress functions ]making life easier for you as a WordPress developer, as I already did with PHP, HTML or CSS, for example.
