You're talking about syntax highlighting, right?
Open up your terminal, become a super user, then open up your .vimrc file and add these lines:
set nocompatible " vim>vi
syntax on " Enable syntax highlighting
filetype on " Enable filetype detection
filetype indent on " Enable filetype-specific indenting
filetype plugin on " Enable filetype-specific plugins
Then save and close the file, quit the terminal and then restart it.
EDIT: those are tabs after the words (before the quotation marks) but the stupid forum software truncated the lines.
