How do I correctly paste my code into a topic?

Posted 31 December 2013 - 04:31 PM

I've tried everything and my posts still are messed up.

Do I click the [il] button, paste code?

OR

do I paste code, highlight code, then click the [il] button????

Press the "[CODE]" button then place your code inside of the tags. I had to write it like this because it is impossible to use the tags without the editor assuming I am trying to paste code.

You can also paste your code, highlight it, then click the CODE button, just above where you are typing, to surround it in the code-tags. Use the Preview Post button as well to check it.

You might try it in a post here.

[il] is typically used to show a section of a line of code. Note that it doesn't do syntax highlighting like the code tags. This does enable you to colourise specific sections of that code.
