It seems that code highlighting has been disabled for some time on this site (at least on my side?). I'm not sure, but I think that there was once the possibility to have such a feature, but either my memories are flawed, or the fact that StackOverflow went on to use highlight.js instead of Google Highlight is the reason. It seems however that there was a possibility to do so in the past, as there was a question about improving the code highlighting functionality.

It seems that creating code with

```python

or with

```lang-python

yields the same result, that is no syntax highlighting.

Is there a procedure to do, either on the user side or on the developers', to get back this functionality?

    $\begingroup$ I'm not aware of any change on our side. Some network-wide change having occurred is possible of course, but are we sure this was ever actually a thing on this site? It's not clear from the linked question whether that was ever actually implemented $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @glS As I said, I'm not sure this was ever a feature on this site! There was a proposal to add code highlighting to this site, to which people seemed to respond positively. Thus, if this was never implemented, should I change my question to know whether it is possible to get such a feature? But that would be a duplicate of the aforementioned question, so what should I do? $\endgroup$

Forgot to eventually update this. Anyway, I asked, it was not implemented; it is now. It is to be activated on a tag-per-tag basis, so let us know (via flag or meta post) of any tag that need to be associated with any language.
