#3743 new defect (bug)

On Make WP blog the 'Follow' action removes syntax highlighting on code snippets

Just noticed this when I went to follow a post on, but if the post contains a code snippet with syntax highlighting that vanished once you click the follow button, either to follow or unfollow doesn't matter.

This occurs due to how O2 works - it tends to remove/replace large parts of the HTML with the same HTML, unfortunately the Syntax highlighting plugin needs to be executed upon each refresh of the content.

This is either a bug in O2, or Syntax Highlighter and not going to be fixed via Meta Trac. It looks like it's probably an O2 thing, as O2 references SyntaxHighlighter but not the other way around.. but maybe Syntax highlighter should be listening to a O2 JS hook..
