Is it worth adding a pinned topic with a suggestion of how to add code snippets or how to post a flow? Currently the </> button adds preformated text, which is handled differently to four spaces indent.
Possibly. It may not be clear that posts are Markdown formatted so the easiest way to add a block of code is with 3 backticks on their own line to start and again to stop the block
` ` ` like this (but without the spaces between of course) and this ` ` `
You can also indent by 4 spaces which is what the
</> button does.
In addition, single backticks wrapped around some text give inline code formatting.
``<like><this>`` (but single not double).
The GitGub flavoured markdown help pages are good to understand the possibilities. Discourse is not quite the same but similar.
Unfortunately thats not what the
</> does for me!
For me, the
</> adds a single backtick
Ah, depends what you’ve
selected first. If you select a whole line or more (at least one newline), you get the 4 space indent, otherwise you get single backticks. What you’d expect and a nice touch. You get the same in other markdown editors too.
Hopefully this is still accurate
Cool, I learned some things there. Only recently started using discourse because of switching my blog to Hugo.
