    IF there was an auto code tags button on Quick Reply...

    * The newbies wouldn't use it anyway, as they would be too in an "urgent" hurry all the time to be bothered to use it.
    * As for me, I would just "[ CODE][/CODE ]" it by hand. Most of the trivial code example I post are typed out directly in the Quick Reply textarea anyway. Come on people, set an example...

    So personally, I don't see the need for it. Maybe for some of the senior members, but I don't think I'd find a good use for it, other than a waste of good bandwidth.
    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    void J(char*a){int f,i=0,c='1';for(;a[i]!='0';++i)if(i==81){
    puts(a);return;}for(;c<='9';++c){for(f=0;f<9;++f)if(a[i-i%27+i%9
    /3*3+f/3*9+f%3]==c||a[i%9+f*9]==c||a[i-i%9+f]==c)goto e;a[i]=c;J(a);a[i]
    ='0';e:;}}int main(int c,char**v){int t=0;if(c>1){for(;v[1][
    t];++t);if(t==81){J(v[1]);return 0;}}puts("sudoku [0-9]{81}");return 1;}

    If there's a quote button, there should be a code button. Simple logic.

    Yeah, I am fully agreed with this simple logic.

    I never use the quick reply. I also never use the code tag button(just type it, it takes less time than finding it with the mouse).

    Actually, I don't use it too, but making this shouldn't be so difficult, because it can just be copied from quote button and then change the picture and text it adds.

    ... Or you could just copy it from the proper reply ... like I did

    <td><div class="imagebutton" id="vB_Editor_001_cmd_wrap0_code"><img src="images/editor/code.gif" width="21" height="20" alt="Wrap [CODE] tags around selected text" /></div></td>
    @Admins - Go on ... do it!! Just once, it can't hurt!

    (Do admins give in to peer pressure?)
