What's a "code tag"?

code tag

suggest explicitly saying "</>"

You mean this? :

Which?
Let's give it a go:
<
Some code here
/>

Edit: Nope. That didn't work.

my formatted code

On the old forum software, I used to be able to use nobbc tags to allow tag demonstration.
I don't think I can be bothered to figure out how to do it with the new software.

sorry using the "</>" icon

Here it is

````
```
// your code here
```
````

renders as:

```
// your code here
```

It's really obvious, when you think about it.

`````
````
```
Here goes nothing
```
````
`````

sorry again
i'm sure all the members of this forum know how to do it

i'm trying to point out that many time members tell newbies to use "code tags". i doubt those newbies know what a code tag is and i posted a link to a google search for code tag.

i am suggesting being very explicit in telling newbies how to post code.
i've tried telling newbies to use </>. i now see i need to say click the </> icon

The HIDDEN trick is for newbies to read the forum intro & guides, but seeing how many can’t spell, I suspect many can’t read either.
