Are instructions on posting available? My posts are not showing line breaks. I'd also like to know how to create the green boxes for codes, and to submit comments under previous posts. Thanks!

  • use two newlines, read up on markdown

    Postgres

  • Thanks. For future generations:

  • Or search the forums :)

    I think that link works. Permalinks for threads appear to be an issue here currently.

  • Actually, the real Markdown way of doing line breaks is two spaces after the line. Doing 2 new lines actually start a new paragraph. For example

    This is line 1
    This is line 2
    This is line 3

    This is paragraph 2

    Adding <br/> at the end of line also works, although that's a bit more awkward.

    That's how we learned how to do it back in Ye Olden Times.

  • In the olden times we didn't use XHTML styled <br/> tags with all that "self-closing" non-sense.

    How did you make it in a square?

    I'm looking for a sponsored KVM VPS, but I'm not in a hurry. Just want to hear what you might offer to me
  • @Xeoncross -- yeah. In the old days when we have SGML before HTML, you could close a tag with just less-than, forward-slash and greater than, i.e.

    <div> ... </>
    

    And I am sure some of us here would prefer to use LaTeX for markups and layouts. Get on with time, shall we? :)

    You can wrap inline code in backticks.

    Here is some `code`

    backticks

    That's a four letter word in some places. yuck Lots of fun explaining on some forums what a backtick is. I get to see lots of ~ marks over the years.
