    Code Tags

    Just wondering if it would be possible to have code tags, separated by "paste code here" automatically appear on every message form. That might save some work for Kermi.

    He wasn't refering to himself, but to all others not knowing/caring about the CodeTag function.
    Actually, it seems like a good idea. Annoying for people posting in GD perhaps, but that's their problem

    Good point Magos.

    I thought for a second he was refering to an automatic code tag formatting option, or possibly implimenting something into the board that does it automatically with no user interaction, but I'm not sure of the specifics of this. Besides that, I wasn't exactly sure on what the original poster meant. Duely noted.

    Good idea.

    Hahah, I've never seen that code tag button before. I've always typed it out
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.

    What would be nice, is if people would read the FAQs, announcements and stickies before they make their first post.

    >>Hit the pound sign.
    Oh man, you mean the hash sign!

    Moving to GD, as this isn't for the C forum.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Unfortunatly I don't think that is possible due to the way vbulliten is made. You're talking about a fundamental change to it's code i bet. Which we probably couldn't do, but even if we could it would be illegal to alter their program like that I bet. I don't have the contract in front of me, webmaster has it, but I bet we couldn't do it.

    u could write a script telling it to execute the code tag placement function on load and still be legal.

    Isn't vBulliten 3 in development as we speak? Maybe you could suggest it Kermi3.....

    Hahah, I've never seen that code tag button before. I've always typed it out
    Yup, never saw it either
    Bad interface design obviously!
    Couldn't think of anything interesting, cool or funny - sorry.

    Perhaps the webmaster will...he owes the lisence....but it's an awful specfic detail for them...considering how broad vbulliten is...we'll see.

    Step 1: Search for '#' in all VB code
    Step 2: Figure out which one is the hash/pound sign that makes the code tag caption
    Step 3: Replace '#' with 'Coder' or 'Code tags' or something equally meaningful

    that is, if we can, under the current license
