I'm not sure who suggested it or when, but the idea of delivering this article to all new subscribers is great.

Some of us old dogs have been around the block long enough to read a while and get a feel for the general rules of any new forum before we dive in...but I see an awful lot of newbs who just rapid fire their stuff and then get all huffy when referred to the proper way to ask for help.

When you click on image it assumes it is an image on the internet somewhere. An easy way around this is to upload an attachment. Then when you are done posting you can right click the attachment to get the URL and edit your post with the image URL. A bit of a hack but it is what most of us do around here.

At the next section down (Post Options), you have to do the "Edit Attachments" thing where you upload your graphic. Once you've done the upload, it will appear as an attachment. If you want it to appear in your post, right click on the attachment and select [Properties]. Copy and paste the URL of the attachment in between the IMG IFCode Shortcuts.

You could refer to a different URL not on SSC but if that URL ever goes away, so will the image on SSC so I don't recommend that method.

But that is a really cool image...WAY better than my boring old plain text explanation.

Thank you for this helpful article.

One further issue i have is i don't know how to actually post in SQL code.
I see people have it added and it seems to have been formatted in some way with a dark background.

When i try to simply copy paste as plain text and then post i always gets a connection reset message, which i assume is protection against SQL injection?

Any pointers on this would help.

I have tried ctrl, k which offered to insert a hyperlink.

Thanks,

Q

What you do is wrap your code in [ code="sql"]query here [ /code] tags (remove the space between the square bracket and the code / /code)

It may be your company trying to protect itself against people posting code from its computers. You may find you have to do things like this to get it to allow you to post:
CRE ATE TABLE
DR OP TABLE
DEC LARE @variable

Hi,

I'm afraid i am a little dense this morning.

What does this mean? I don't see any option of adding code tags.

What you do is wrap your code in [ code="sql"]query here [ /code] tags (remove the space between the square bracket and the code / /code)

Is there perhaps a way to see an image of what this looks like?

You can either type those tags as you see them, or you can select them from the IFCode Shortcuts section, just to the left of where you type, in the Post Reply window.
