( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
ybiC seems to think I should post what I'm doing, and nobody else on chatterbox expressed strong disagreement.

I often have difficulty finding old nodes I would like to link to because of common or unrelated subjects (for example, a post about tie with a subject of Re: RE: RE: Suggestions quest).

In an attempt to address this problem, I am going through my old posts (which thankfully are small in number) and apending all Re: titles with (kudra: <subject>) (minus the emphasis). I think this could be useful because:

  1. Subject titles are now unique, which leads to easier linking (existing links are most likely unaffected, because links to replies are usually done by node_id). Titles are longer, but can always be pasted in.
  2. Nodes will respond better to searchs by answering to relevant keywords and by specifying the author in the event of multiple returns. A quick glance at the subject will reveal if the post is the one being sought
  3. The original title is retained, so it is easy to see which posts are related, even without being on one of the thread's nodes

For an example of this, look at my list of postings.

In reply to Suggestion for post-naming convention by kudra

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.
