Welcome aboard the Puppy ship, mate!

For the sake of example:

[list=]
a,
z,
n,
[/list]

Hm... You're right, list does not do anything. First time I've used it myself, though.

Code:
a,
z,
n,


As you can see, code works fine, however. If you want to share, say, a script, you would paste it in your message, then your block it in the message and then you press the "Code" button. And it appears like above. It's handy to separate the computer language you want to share from the comments, explanations, etc. in your message.

To post screenshots,
first make one on your computer. (Obvious!)
make it a bit smaller in your paint program, perhaps 800x600 resolution, and save a jpg (makes much smaller files than png). What we want to do here is give an impression of our desktop to the community; they wouldn't be able use the image of our Puppy screen as their own backdrop anyway.

second, attach it using the attachment function below the message window. (Choose, then ADD buttons).

That's pretty much it.

I'm not an image person, so I can't help you much with picture storing sites, but I'm sure there are lots on the Internet if you search a bit. For large programs and such I use limelnx (http://limelinx.com/), which is excellent also for media and music files. Try the widely known flicker photo sharing site (http://www.flickr.com/) perhaps?

Thank you Darkcity, I never knew what [List=] was for.

Out of consideration for those with small displays, the forum will not display attached images wider than 600 pixels. However it will display linked [img] images of any size.

Hello, HiDeHO

You wrote :

If you look at the third line above your message box, there's a line of buttons. The "Code" button is in the middle and the "URL" button is at the end of the line. Please do not confuse the two. You've used the "URL" button in your dummy example.

I mentioned earlier when the "Code" button should be used.

this above example should be a quote. you click the quote button in the message you are referring to then edit out the unwanted txt or copy the txt you want to quote and use the quote button above the message box.

Ha, I thought HiDeHo intentionally misused "Code" so that the forum would show his example as he meant it to. Laughing
