( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Is it just me or is it too difficult to post stuff here on perlmonks? The only things i have figured out is how to reply and how to "make a petition" (which i am pretty sure is new monk discussion, which is what i'm doing now). anyway, I've been trying to figure out how to post to seekers of perl wisdom, but have been unsuccessful. There needs to be a node on the side saying "Post to Obfuscated Code" or "Post to new craft". The current system is just too confusing, and definatly not newbie friendly (and i don't consider myself a newbie).

So how does everyone else feel about this? And if this isn't changed, how the heck does one post to seekers of perl wisdom, and the others????


In reply to Too difficult to post by Rydor

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
