I might be missing something, but how can I paste into this box? I see that people are doing it somehow. I would like to be able to paste snippets of code that relate to my questions. Is there a tutorial on posting?

Thanks,

Mark

Use the camera icon in the reply header.

On the main page there is a Forum FAQ that answers many questions.

In the reply box, look at the tool bar below the subject... Click on the quote mark over a speech balloon icon to quote the message. You can then edit it. To post an image (may even work for a non-image file) use the camera icon. You can also attach files using the A with a link icon... but that usually ends up in a queue and no one knows how long it stays in limbo.

You can't use your mouse to paste, but you can still use the standard keyboard short cut, [Ctrl] + v (Windows).

Other standard shortcuts work too, such as those I'm used to for bold, italic, and underline.

[Ctrl] + s sends (posts) the message.

I also would like to know how to post code.  The only way I can think of now is to use the HTML option, then use the <code> tags:

main()
{
          printf("hello, world");
}

From the default editor online, use the >>Insert->Syntax Highlighting->Plain (or one of the other choices if applicable).

But you should probably convert tabs to spaces if you're posting lots of nested code. It seems to use tab lengths of 5 spaces - and sometimes inserts strange variations of HTML non-breaking spaces in between the tabs.

Don't even bother posting code via email replies yet. It tends to munge certain pieces of code.
