VS Code will not highlight my ejs syntax

I am trying to create a node application and I am using the EJS template language on VS Code. However whenever I go to my store.ejs and put in the <% %> it doesn’t highlight at all and just shows up as plain text. I’ve downloaded the VS Code EJS support extension and have changed my user setting, but I still can’t get anything

Try this ejs language support extension.

That was the extension I downloaded, but it still does’t work

A work-around exists to surround the code with commented script tags.

let people = ['geddy', 'neil', 'alex'],
html = ejs.render('<%= people.join(", "); %>', { people: people });
document.getElementById('output').innerHTML = html;
