Finally a plugin that works with the outdated "Crayon Syntax Highlighter" plugin So I don't have to mess around with every post.

I tried to use this plugin in WP 5.0.2 and it works. I got an issue with Litespeed cache configuration and seems we should exclude this plugin javascript from an optimization process. Then you will be fine!
