Quoting and outputting fixed-width text

Post by pertneer » Mon Apr 13, 2009 12:07 pm

Quoting text in replies
There are two ways you can quote text, with a reference or without.

* When you utilise the Quote function to reply to a post on the board you should notice that the post text is added to the message window enclosed in a
block. This method allows you to quote with a reference to a person or whatever else you choose to put! For example to quote a piece of text Mr. Blobby wrote you would enter:

Code: Select all

 [quote="Mr. Blobby"]The text Mr. Blobby wrote would go here[/quote]
The resulting output will automatically add "Mr. Blobby wrote:" before the actual text. Remember you must include the quotation marks "" around the name you are quoting, they are not optional.
* The second method allows you to blindly quote something. To utilise this enclose the text in
tags. When you view the message it will simply show the text within a quotation block.

Outputting code or fixed width data
If you want to output a piece of code or in fact anything that requires a fixed width, e.g. Courier type font you should enclose the text in

Code: Select all

 [code]
[/code] tags, e.g.

Code: Select all

[code]echo "This is some code";
[/code]

All formatting used within

Code: Select all

[code]
[/code] tags is retained when you later view it. PHP syntax highlighting can be enabled using

Code: Select all

[code=php]
[/code] and is recommended when posting PHP code samples as it improves readability.
