Placing Code On Forums

  • It’s impossible to place HTML code on this website using the backticks ‘. I tried to give someone a solution to their problem and was unable to do so because your code markups do not work. Please fix this!!!!

    Like this HTML code?

    <div class="threadpost col-7">
    			<div class="post"><p>It's impossible to place HTML code on this website using the backticks '. I tried to give someone a solution to their problem and was unable to do so because your code markups do not work. Please fix this!!!!
    			</p></div>
    </div>

    Fix what again? That wasn’t the backtick you’ve used that was the single quote.

    Use the code button, that will work. Just make sure you put the backtick on a line by itself above your code and below it.

    <a href="testblahblah">Testing</a>

    Well thanks! It’s unfortunate that it’s designed that way as opposed to normal code blocks such as [code]adfopintpg[/code] where the markers can be placed in a normal position. I’ll get used to it I suppose.

    Years ago, I remember reading something about how teaching people markdown like that, versus actually using HTML, was making things harder. If we all use <em> then we all know how to make italics on any system.

    I’ve come to think everything should just use HTML like we intended and not add more and more layers 😉 (now if <code> tags worked…)

    now if <code> tags worked…

    And yet, I'm pretty sure that pre does work which I'm using right now...
    

    Which makes my head hurt, having <code> parsed would be nice… 😉
