[resolved] Questions About Using This Forum (4 posts)

    I'm not finding how to use this editor. Help appreciated:

    1) How do we indent lines, as in showing a file directory hierarchy? On "Post" leading spaces are removed. Someone said "use Code Tag". There's a button above named "Code"; click it and it inserts a mysterious and nearly invisible something, like maybe an asterisk. So?

    2) How do we quote from someone else's post. I see others do it, but nothing to suggest how.

    3) How do we close a thread, i.e., signal that it has been "resolved"?

    Thanks in advance. New member, obviously.

  2. 1. To make a code block, you use a back tick (look below the message window where it says allowed markup for an example).

    2. Block quote :) you press the b-quote button, copy/paste the text you want to quote, press it again, done. Just like with HTML.

    3. Right hand side of your post, in the about this post column.

    Hey, thanks. I'll try each:

    I assume this is a backtick at left
       and the indents will
          survive

    Next I'll quote you saying

    copy/paste the text you want to quote, press it again, done. Just like with HTML
    which looks good so far.
    And I now see the "resolved" option up top, but I'd better not select yet until I'm sure I'm doing this correctly.
    Thanks in any event.

    Seems ok to me. If you need to post large blocks of code, please use a pastebin (Alternate URL). Thanks!
