How to use SytaxHighlighter code with Blogger

# Add Sytax Highlighter to your Blogger Code Samples After trying many solutions to implement syntax highlighting on Blogger, I came across [Alex Gorbatchev’s](http://alexgorbatchev.com/SyntaxHighlighter/) Javascript plugin. Implementing it is very easy, however, I couldn’t get it to work on secure (https) URLs. Add the below code in your head  tag.

<!-- BEGIN SyntaxHighlighter BEGIN -->
<link href="https://alexgorbatchev.com/pub/sh/current/styles/shCoreDefault.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<link href="https://alexgorbatchev.com/pub/sh/current/styles/shThemeDefault.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    SyntaxHighlighter.config.bloggerMode = true;
    SyntaxHighlighter.all();
 </script>
 
<!-- END SyntaxHighlighter END -->

Sample code for the implement.

<pre class="brush: js">  <script type="text/javascript">
  console.log('First Code Block');
 </script>
</pre>You might be wondering why I have given the "pre" tag "brush: js" as classes. You need to mention the syntax highlighting that needs to be used to highlight your code. You can find the full list of supported syntax declarations [here](http://alexgorbatchev.com/SyntaxHighlighter/manual/brushes/).
