More testing code layout May 19, 2009Posted by mwidlake in Blogging.
Well, I pinged an email to the nice support guys at WordPress.com about whether I had missed something about turning off the gutter (line numbering) from the sourcode view, but there is no flag I missed and no mention was made of it coming in the future. I also am a little concerned that using sourcecode slows down the rendering of the web page. So I might save it for special code.
I also found out that if your code sample is more than about 60 characters long, you exceed the width of the text area and get scroll bars to the bottom and side (not of course helped by not being able to suppres the line numbering):
But the nice support desk person did suggest I try pre tags;
Hmmm, nope, not really better than code.
I am starting to think I duffed slightly in chosing this style, Regulus. I suspect it does not respond to many formatting tags.
On the plus side, the nice helpdesk person did agree to putting the issue of access to the flags for sourcecode on the list of requested enhancements. Nice people.
