I've been trying to get syntax highlighting in vi, and the usual things haven't been working for me. I've tried a good .vimrc file in my home directory, and a vimrc file in the /etc directory.

Any other suggestions? Thanks.

I believe you need to recompile. There are a couple of threads on this. Let's see if I can find any.

More specifically, take a look at this post for color support.

Thanks. Don't you hate it when n00bs just ask a question after only halfheartedly searching? :)

But really, that helped a ton. Thanks.

:lol: We can't blame you that much. The search in phpBB leaves much to be desired.
