Plugin for PHP syntax highlighting?

Apparently we can install .tmbundle files that will give us PHP syntax highlighting. I have tried and it hasn't worked. This post on Stackoverflow mentions that the php textmate bundle does not work in webstorm. I am not a PHP developer, and I have already bought webstorm, but I would really like to be able to support syntax highlighting in PHP as every other editor that I have will let me. I have been trying the PHPStorm demo but it freaks out whenever I switch between the 2 apps, so there's no way I will pay for that as an inferior solution.

Is there another bundle somewhere that will work to get PHP syntax highlighting?

I just want some nice php syntax highlighting so I don't look like a total newb when other developers look at my editor!

 

Thanks in advance.

there are no other textmate bundles for PHP I'm aware of... You can try using custom types. Try this one, for example: https://github.com/a2net/WebStorm-php-Syntax-Highlight-with-WordPress-functions

Thank you! Sometimes it won't update highlights until I edit the line again, but it makes php files look much more sensible.

Still somewhat confused there's no textmate-bundle type solution that would work for this, but this is a huge improvement
