I recently edited this question and now the syntax highlighting is gone (actually, I don't remember if it was there to begin with).

Before clicking Save Edits, the highlighting was visible but not after the save.

What did I do wrong?

There have been changes made to the syntax highlighting functionality recently. The question you linked to is not tagged with a language, so it isn't sure what to do. You could add the [objective-c] tag if that is appropriate (seems like it would be but I did just glance at the question) and that should kick-start the syntax highlighter.

  • That did it, thanks. How would one specify a language for a tag (eg. ipad) and does that require a certain rep?
