Discussion about this forum, how it works, and how we can improve it.
Seems like the most common problem that people are having while using this site is not knowing how to post a block of code. Is there any ability for others to edit their posts? It seems like only Nick and Dave have that ability, and are spending a not insignificant bit of their precious time cleaning up these discussions.
Ideally, there would be a default setting that causes all pasted text (larger than say 1K) to be surrounded by triple-backtics automatically – and if that is not desired, then they could be removed manually.
I agree, I was replying to a post with a bit of code for the first time a few minutes ago and I was searching the icons in the toolbar to find the “code” command then I remembered that this was compatible with markdown (MD) and used the three backticks …
Isn’t it possible to add an icon to the toolbar ?
