Why doesn’t plugin X work on my blog?

You must enable the plugin on your blog. There are only a few plugins that are network-enabled.

What plugins are network enabled?

Blog Owner Role, cets_blog_defaults, and the plugin we use for authentication.

Why aren’t you using Akismet (or other spam-filtering)?

Use of Akismet for this blog requires an enterprise license. We are exploring options in getting a license or using a different plugin.

Why doesn’t SyntaxHighlighter Evolved work in my Markdown blog post?

You must surround your code block with a div when you use Markdown as the formatting language. This lets the Markdown interpreter know to leave the code block alone.

How do I syntax highlight my code?

Surround your code with:

[code lang=”sql”]

SELECT top 1 * from users


If your code still isn’t highlighted, we may not support the particular language. Contact us to add support.
