Furlow consulting


If you are novice or a pro with using WordPress, there often comes a time when you want to be able to display programming code and make it look like programming code in your posts. The challenge is that depending on where you add your text, WordPress will interpret code such as HTML when it is added to a post.

This tutorial covers the use of equivalent entities – otherwise known as extended characters. These characters are used to be able to show elements of code that would normally be interpreted by the WordPress editor. Examples and usage are provided

We also discuss the use of the PRE tag and show usage. The tag is often used to display code within WordPress posts. When used, it preserves the spacing and linebreaks that were added when typing the code into the post.
