Al and I have been kicking around the idea of allowing for Java syntax
highlighting for our community message boards.
While the ability to include code on the forums is important, it would be much
more useful if it were more readable. There are a variety of solutions for
this, a php solution, more specifically a phpbb solution, an apache solution,
candidate, in that it would require the least amount of work. CodePress is a
project on sourceforge to exactly what we're talking about (and a bit more,
allowing for dynamic syntax highlighting!)
For an example of an exceptionally ugly forum post, because of a lack of syntax
highlighting, check out this posting:
We're moving the forums into the community site. I'm assigning to Amie so she
can keep this in mind when she does the forums migration.
This is done with the new release of community site.
