Site Mambot: Edit [ GeSHi ]


Mambot Type: content

File Name: geshi.php

GeSHi is an Open Source syntax highlighter program that helps illustrate different code languages such as PHP, JavaScript, HTML, each in a different colour, to assist with the readability of a code entry in a Content Item. This code entry must be encased within a <pre>...</pre> element that defines a block of preformatted code.

In this Mambot form, GeSHi is installed with the ability to highlight CSS, HTML4 (strict), JavaScript, PHP, PHP brief, MySQL, SQL, and XML.

For full details of what GeSHi is, and how it does it, visit the GeSHi web site. It is also possible to add to the languages available for the GeSHi Mambot by downloading the full program from this site, extracting the required language files, and then adding these to the joomla_root/mambots/content/geshi/geshi/ directory.



Save: Click Save to save any changes made during the current editing session, and return to the Mambot Manager screen.

Apply: Click Apply to save any changes made so far in the current session, but remain in the Mambot screen to continue editing. If the current action was creating a new Mambot it will now have been saved, and will appear on the Mambot Manager list. In addition, the current session now becomes an Edit action rather than the Add action it was previously. Once the editing session is complete click Save as above.

Close: Click Close at any point to end the current editing session and return to the Mambot Manager screen. Any changes made since the session commenced, or since the last time Apply was clicked, will be lost.

Help: Click the Help icon at any time to view this Help Screen.


Name: Enter a name for the Mambot. The name is used by the Mambot Manager to identify it in its display list of all Mambots.

Mambot Order: This function allows the position for this Mambot in the order of all Mambots to be set within the Mambot Manager.This function becomes active once a Mambot is saved for the first time. By default the new Mambot will be added to the end of the order for that particular classification (Folder) of Mambot.

Select the position where this Mambot is required to be placed, from the drop down list of all installed Mambots. The current Mambot at that position will shift down a position upon saving. The order can also be changed directly within the Mambot Manager.

Access Level: Identify which User Group level can view this Mambot. Select from Public, Registered, or Special. See User Access Levels for further details on these.

Published: Select No or Yes to set whether the Mambot is Published.

Description: Enter a description of the Mambot that explains its function in the open text field. The text will be displayed within the Administrator Back-end only and is for future reference purposes.
