There is a bug in this file, which prevents hl_lines parameter from being used.
The regex SYNTAX needs to be modified to allow values of form name="value1 value2 value3" because hl_lines expects a list, but not a single value.
We'll revisit this if enough people ask for it.
Probably worth mentioning I am hitting this as well,
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14943492/highlighting-multiple-lines also is, and there is a patch up at
I definitely don't like the code in that patch but if we can get this to be looser so we can do multi-line highlights, I'm all for it. I was clearly way too swamped four months ago. :)
Me too, I cannot pass line highlight. Thanks for great jekyll..
I would like to use this feature as well.
I'd love a PR if any of you have time.
+1 for that feature
Should now work.
