    [SOLVED] How to create code tags


    If I am calling it by the right name, code tags is what allows you to copy a long output and post it on the forum in a small box. How do you use them, that is what symbol do you use #@%&* or what?

    I have searched linux google, and the forum, and while I find code tags, no one tells how to use them. I read FAQ and "all newbies read this", but either missed it or there are no instructions.

    Thanks, I don't want to irritate people by using a straight copy and paste of output, so would appreciate knowing how to make those little boxes.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Solved

    I wasn't putting the / in front of the second code. Simple, but frustrating.
