Posting Code Samples in the Forums

On occasion, you may experience issues with the posting of code samples. The problem with some code sample is that it might not be formatted to be interpreted as code.

Text can be formatted to be interpreted as code either by indenting it with 4 spaces or by wrapping the code between lines that contain three backticks ```.

The platform will attempt to find the correct code language for the code, but to ensure that the correct language highlighting is used, users can add the language after the opening three backticks. For example, ```diff .

For long blocks of code, it is best to use the approach.

I hope you find this information helpful.
