  • keywords – Set to true or false to have code keywords linked to help pages
  • numbers – Set to normal or fancy to specify the line numbering method
  • css – Set to true or false to tell GeSHi whether to embed styles, or whether to use CSS classes
  • force – When set to true the contents are assumed to be PHP, even though they may not start with <?php
  • highlight – Colour highlight specified lines. Lines are separated with a pipe, and can include a range. For example, highlight=1|4|7-15 – highlight line 1, 4 and 7 to 15


This will randomize the content based upon a type parameter:

  • line – display a random line from the content
  • word – display a random word from the content
  • custom – split the content using the delimited specified by the parameter custom and display a randomly selected piece of content
  • section (default) – split the content using [section] as the delimiter
