Re: Code Snippets. Ancient Dragon, don't feel bad, because I'm still learning too. Some times when those Nasties, Virus spam- people attack our community, the things that are suppose to be there are not. It happened to me several times. I'm sure the Moderators will fix this soon. I came across someone posted in your thread, just click the icon. I said to myself, "What icon?" I was clicking and nothing happened and had to re sign in. Congratulations for what you've accomplished. Thank you for contributing so much to this community.

Aha there they are... Thanks.

@Dani: Do snippets still show up as a normal forum-thread with the "snippet" prefix as before or are they only listed in the "snippets" tab?

[edit]
After changing ~20 C++snippets back to normal threads, there are now only 3 snippets left from the last 2 months.. I think we're not the only ones that are having a hard time finding the snippets..

Re: Code Snippets

Pritaeas *If you go to a forum, there is a code snippets tab.

I see, it's lighter, and it's a subtab. I never saw that before, even though I've been there before. The Moderators probably fixed the problem. Awesome job everyone.

>>Huh??

Could you be a bit more specific?

Are you still as lost as I am. Don't feel bad, even though I just saw the code snippets after I clicked to the C++ forum. It shows up lighter in the sub tabs. News stories, product review, code snippets, interviews, tutorials, & Up voted, solved, unanswered. When I clicked the sub tab code snippets (211) or (111) code snippets. I can't remember the exact number. I saw well over a hundred threads. But when I looked above that, I saw them stating various ways to do the code snippets. One was [BB code] [code 1] or [1 code]. I should have written it down. It goes into a basic explanation of what codes you can use. Even though I've heard of these before. The how to I don't know how to do it. I'm as lost as you are. But I did see a thread in Php and the height and width to put down in order to do these code snippets, I think, I haven't read them yet. My only advise is to look at you address bar to see how your computer directs you when browsing, especially when you log in to your e-mail accounts. Write down these codes, so you will know which one to chose from. The only way I can explain it is it's a link followed by another link, which is directing your browser to this (web page). I'm new to my X-P and I'm learning a totally diffent language than what I was used to on top of my OS which I am just beginning to learn. :$= I hope this has helped somewhat. But I'm stumped too. That's is why I don't have any code snippets, because of what I've previously stated. *** **Someone had just answered/posted to my thread while I was responding to someone else s' thread. It said just click on the icon. I clicked where it said that and every where and looked everywhere for this icon. Nothing happened.

Are you still as lost as I am

No. I was quoting Dani. Us oldies on forums often use >> style quote-tags instead of the quote-tags provided by Daniweb.

RE: RE: Code Snippets. Nick Evan, somehow I ended up receiving a thread from you with that quote ##Huh? Huh? What happened?! Huh?! Could you be a bit more specific?### I ended up receiving that quote after I responded to: Ancient Dragons thread. He did a thumbnail of the c++ forum & those sub-tabs were not coming up. No Ancient Dragon is not blind. ****notation** I noticed when I had my overhead big light on my computer, those sub-tabs were not apparent. After I shut off that light, I could see the sub-tabs in his thumbnail. But only after I was Just using my desk lamp, without my overhead big light. It seemed to have faded away in the background, when I turned on my big light. What perked my curiosity the advanced "what called us Oldies," were not seeing the code snippets at all. I am very acute to detail and sometimes this detailed oriented mind of mine can drive me crazy.****But in actuality I have to stop myself for a moment of pause and acknowledge the fact that this is indeed a "gift," instead of an irritation. :) Maybe that is why I am here to enable that gift & see perhaps something very minute that someone else missed. I used to have to view pages of system output and circle all the errors in the program writing. That's why the programs didn't load or work. Then have to turn back back around and rewrite that program correctly in order for them to properly load and run. *****

*****I've been in c++ before and that was the first time that "Code Snippets" popped up. I think you were quoting CS Cgal. Now how I ended up with your quote is a mystery to me. I wasn't saying you were lost. I was trying to state a fact that, even the Older more seasoned Moderators & those whom are more knowledgeable with the ie.;" computers & forums for years;" still~*** "Were not seeing what was suppose to be there, meaning, we are all lost if it is not there. How can one be effective, if it's not there?" In essence, something happened temporarily to those code snippets and they were>>>GONE. ***

Question What are the style quote-tags? You have to understand that I have never been to a forum and this is the first & only one that I have joined. I trying to get more familiarized with this forum and their terminology. When the seasoned Veterans are having problems with the simplistic sub-tabulations that are suppose to be there and they are not, then I figure it's a matter of debugging in order to get that particular kink out.*****
******That is why I have a great appreciation and respect for what all of you do here, including yourself Nick Evan. If only the majority of the members only knew how complicated and difficult it can be, they would have a better appreciation for what you all do here. Thank you again. :)

Question What are the style quote-tags?

You're misinterpreting. He means ">> style" "quote tags" (quote tags in the style of >>) not ">>" "style quote tags".

(just for clarification, not to steer this OT)

Re: Re: Code Snippets Thank you Jonsca. I had to leave due to an emergency. Sorry it took me so long to get back to your response. Ha! No it's chocolate icecream, I have low blood sugar and need caffeine. I have to get back to my other urgent matter. Thank you for that clarification. But I don't know what that means. You "Oldies," have been here for years so you know what you are doing. I'm still learning. I just edited my signature and my smiles are gone, I downloaded the v-card & can't find it, and some other things are missing. But it's a matter of time until I'll get the hang of things around here. You are all helping my mind grow and learn every day. You're misinterpreting. He means ">> style" "quote tags" (quote tags in the style of >>) not ">>" "style quote tags".

Re: Re: Code Snippets Hi ~SoS~

Oh my god, my eyes, they bleed! :-)

Sorry I had to leave due to an emergency and now have to tend to something urgent. Too much. I came back hours later & had to post it twice. I really did have an emergency to tend to. Thank God, it's calmed down to urgent. Any ways, I don't think you're a failure as a human. I think you're funny, but not a failure. I also love your quote on happiness, it's true. None of us are perfect, we all make mistakes, but the point is: That we learn from those mistakes & hope not to repeat them or at least try to. If we don't try, how can we learn? When we learn, then we gain knowledge. Finally when we gain knowledge and use it right, we apply that knowledge to the enrichment of us all. Yes human kind and here. Maybe I'm just here to encourage and give people laughter, I don't know, in time I'll find my nitch here. ***
