On discuss.phpList.org our users are having issues with the code tag. There seem to be two methods of using it
- paste in your code, select it, and click the code tag - that works fine
- Click the code tag and paste your code - this does not work
First of all, clicking the code tag says “indent preformatted text by 4 spaces” which is selected, persumably so if you paste it replaces it? This is very counter-intuitive, perhaps “paste your code” could be more helpful? Secondly, when you then paste the code, the formatting seems to be wiped anyway, so the code tag does not work. Perhaps I am misunderstanding something here?
method 1) is quite cumbersome, so I assumed method 2 was the intended use.
Anyway, there has been a long served forum mod who has struggled with this some much he just stopped modding
