Topic: How to put [code] or [/code] literally in a forum post? (Read 262 times) previous topic - next topic


Imagine (if you can) I wanted to explain code tags to someone on this forum.

I might want to say something like, "Type [ code ] then paste in your sketch, then type [ /code ] at the end"

Here I've used extra spaces to break up the tags and prevent the forum software from interpreting them. It works, kinda, but doesn't look quite right, and I think there's a risk that the inexperienced might parrot the extra spaces which would defeat the object.

So, how would I go about having the tags display in a forum post, but adding spaces? Is there a 'standard' way to go about it?
