Yesterday I installed and activated Blass2 theme for this blog. I liked this theme as it was very simple and free from any extra graphics. After installing the theme, I discovered that “SyntaxHighlighter Evolved” plugin which I use to display code segments, was not working. I searched for other themes which are similar to blass2 and can run syntaxhighlighter plugin, but couldn’t find anything better. Finally, this is how I fixed it.
To fix it, I had to edit ‘footer.php’ of Blass2 theme using inbuilt theme editor of WordPress (Appearance > Editor). The original ‘footer.php’ looked like this:
To fix the plugin, you need to add a call to ‘wp_footer’ function in ‘footer.php’.
After making this change, syntaxhighlighter plugin started working again.
