Get WP-Syntax

I was just using blockquote, code and pre HTML tags for indicating codes in my blogs, but they just looked horrible!

But I just installed WP-Syntax, and it’s fantastic. Now, all the codes in my blogs should read much easier.

If you use WordPress and have lots of codes, you probably use some sort of markup tool already. If you don’t, get WP-Syntax.

How to enable WordPress permalinks on

On WordPress’ page about using permalinks, it gives steps to enable “pretty” permalinks. I have non-shell hosting account at, and I had use only .htacceess to make it work. Even though the WordPress’ instruction says you have to set FileInfo directives allowed, but I found that it actually causes Internal Server 500 error.

I had the following piece of code in .htaccess, and now it’s working fine.

# BEGIN WordPress

Options FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress
