I’m writing a tutorial on my site and I need to be able to display HTML and CSS code for the purpose of the tutorial. How do I embed code so it actually shows up the way that I wrote it with line numbers next to the code so that my visitor can simply copy and paste the code?
Many ways to do this but be careful.
I think Github Gists is the best.
Used by all the Genesis Developers
I tried using that but I didn’t know where or how to put the “embed” link into my post…I tried everything but it didn’t work.
You simply grab the embed link from Github Gists and paste it in your text editor.
1. Click on This Gist link above
2. Copy from the Embed This Gist
3. Paste the one line of script into your text editor and click save
4. View this post to see the result.
Thanks Brad…that worked…I don’t know what I was doing wrong before!
