Topic # 109248 16-Sep-2012 15:17 Send private message

I had a thread here where I was asking for help learning the javascript language,  however pasting the code here resulted in "breaking" the forum and the thread was deleted.

Is there a more appropriate way to paste code here so that I can get help from other members?  I know some forums have a code function.

Geekzone bbcode has a code tag I think

 
var test = $('something');


However I'd just use http://pastie.org/ and post a link to your code as you get syntax highlighting etc

It's just not working :( I can't paste my code here without it causing errors on geekzone.


Is any nice person that knows javascript able to PM me? I just have a quick question that I'm sure is easy to solve but it's driving me nuts. Thanks!

Can't copy and paste from a jpeg easily, not the best solution.
