If you’ve updated to Coda 2 and have been using the excellent WordPress Syntax Mode by Thorsten, you need to copy it (and any other modes you’ve been using) over to
~/Library/Application Support/Coda 2/Modes/. It works just fine, but syntax highlighting is broken. To fix this (and avoid wading through too much code), I simply made a copy of the
SyntaxDefinition.xml file in
/Applications/Coda 2.app/Contents/Resources/PHP-HTML.mode/Contents/Resources/ and copied over the contents of the
<keywords id="PHP4 Functions"> ... </keywords> node from Thorsten’s version.
Finally replace all instances of
PHP-HTML in the file with
PHP-HTML-WP, save the file as SyntaxDefinition.xml in
~/Library/Application Support/Coda 2/Modes/PHP-HTML-WP.mode/Contents/Resources (replacing the old one) and restart Coda 2.
For convenience, here’s the whole updated mode package: PHP-HTML-WP.mode. Unzip and drop into
~/Library/Application Support/Coda 2/Modes/.
NB: This is just a quick hack until Thorsten updates the original. I cannot guarantee this will work perfectly for everyone.
