Why did I create this plugin ?
Whenever I was installing any new WordPress theme most of them has not good Pre and Code CSS tags. Because I write technical posts in SharadChhetri.com , I need Pre and Code tag to share the commands and scripts. These commands were showing as overflow contents. To fix such issue, I was editing the theme files or updating custom CSS section. To overcome from repeated work, I created this plugin.
Why I was not using the existing Syntax Highlighter Plugins
There are many existing Code and Syntax Highlighters plugins are already available in WordPress.org but as per my requirement I need a simple plugin which should not slow my website. The existing plugin are so much feature rich which is good but it was also causing slowness in website.
