    Suggestion for addition to stickies


    I think it would be helpful to everyone if one or more of the various stickies could include a description of how (and why and when) to post in [CODE] tags. Newbies never seem to use them, and even when they are recommended to, they don't know how and often can't figure it out. It would be nice to have a link to point them to. I just browsed through the stickies and linked help threads, and couldn't find any such description, so apologies if I've missed it somehow.

    Thanks for the suggestion, if no one can find a howto for posting code by 10PM or so, I'll try to type one up and post it this evening. I have events that I need to attend to today, otherwise I'd do it now. You could type one up and post it too, if you'd like. If it's well written, it might get stickied.

    I've added the question and answer about how to use BB code tags to this stickied thread:

    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/com...ng-forums.html

    The link provided in the answer has some pretty good tips and examples on using BB code tags.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
