If you're looking for a syntax highlighter code embedding plugin to embed your Code Snippets on your WordPress blog posts in a beautiful and organized manner then this blog post will help you find the best plugin for that purpose.

I'm going to compare a few syntax highlighter WordPress plugins that I have personally tested and all these plugins are regularly updated and maintained by their respective developers until now.

I'm specifically saying this because I have read a lot of blog posts while researching on this topic and most of them are suggesting the plugins that are either backdated or abandoned by their developers.

There are so many code embedding plugins you can find in the WordPress repository but you don't need to waste your time finding the best one as I have done all the hard work for you, hence you just check the comparison table below and select the plugin that suits your needs.

Here are the plugins I found the best:

Conclusion

Most of the experts will suggest you to use the SyntaxHighlighter Evolved plugin and it works just fine but I personally don't like it.

Also after testing multiple syntax plugins side by side I can say that most of the available plugins are not that great and the plugins I have listed here are better than the others in all aspects.

However, I end up using CodeMirror Blocks due to its backend preview functionality which no other plugins are offering at this moment.

Now it's your turn to select a syntax plugin from the listed ones here, feel free to drop a comment below as I'm curious to know which one you like the most.
