  1. i like it but. i want your syntax highlighter color. Yours coding section is different with white and grey color and i need to change the line colors too. you can see my demo:

    1. Ok then fine below code in your template

      <link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>

      replace it with below code

      <link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>

      Note - If you have added different theme then above code may be different from your code then best way to find your theme URL is to find shTheme[THEME NAME HERE]

  2. This is nice...
    What is the use of selecting brushes?
