WordPress Plugin – FV Community News

Many blogs out there can only produce a couple articles a week while their visitors ask for loads more. It’s sometimes a good idea to add related articles from other blogs to your sidebar. Adding them manually takes lots of time we don’t have. With this new Community News plugin you allow your visitors to add articles to the sidebar. Complete with moderation panel and a settings page, you can sit back while you have full control about the look and articles that being posted.

FV Code Highlighter V1.1

The moment is here, the release of the FV Code Highlighter plugin version 1.1. In this release PHP is completely supported. I told you that I would try to implement JavaScript and Java as well, but unfortunately this isn’t done yet. The reason for this is that I simply already wanted to release this version because of the (better) support for PHP.

Also the admin panel is improved for better usability, see the screenshot below.

Furthermore, a security issue, which makes it possible for every subscriber of your blog to change the code display settings, is solved. And a few little bugs have been fixed.

New PHP Highlighter In Town

Hey everyone,

As you could have read here, the current release of my code highlighter has some trouble with highlighting PHP on servers running PHP version 4. I told you I should try to fix the problem and include a better PHP highlighter in the next release.

I worked very hard this morning to get PHP fixed, and I’m proud to announce that PHP is almost working the way it should. That means: including servers running PHP4.

You want an example? Sure, here it is:

PHP Code Like It Should

/* Connect to a MySQL database using driver invocation */
$dsn = 'mysql:dbname=testdb;host=';
$user = 'dbuser';
$password = 'dbpass';

try {
    $conn = new PDO($dsn, $user, $password);
    $sql = 'SELECT name, color, calories FROM fruit ORDER BY name';

    foreach ($conn->query($sql) as $row) {
        echo $row['name'] . "\t";
        echo $row['color'] . "\t";
        echo $row['calories'] . "\n";
} catch (PDOException $e) {
    echo 'Connection failed: ' . $e->getMessage();

So, What’s Next?

After this highlighter is finished, I create one for JavaScript and properly one for Java. As soon as they all work the way it should, I will release version 1.1.

See you.

WordPress Plugin – FV Code Highlighter

The main subject of this blog will be web development and feature some interesting articles and tutorials ranging from PHP and jQuery to HTML and CSS. The problem I was facing when I built this theme was the lack of an awesome code highlighter plugin. I just couldn’t find one that was working for me.

I thought maybe more people were looking for a plugin that simply publishes codes that look great. I started to write my own, and the FV Code Highlight plugin was born and now open for the public. The features are plain and simple, read on.
