    How to post code:
    1. Make sure your editor has extra formatting controls enabled:

      1. Click "User CP", then click "Edit options"

      2. At the bottom of the page select "Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls"

    2. When you make a post, paste in the code, select it with the mouse, then click the # button

    3. The # button places [CODE]...[/CODE] tags around the text for you. Alternatively, you can just type in the [CODE]...[/CODE] tags yourself, but I find using the # button easier.

    # = hash, £ = pound

    I'm linking your post in my signature, so I thought I'd correct the typographical terminology. Also [noparse] tags! Didn't know they existed until I clicked quote. The things you learn...

    I've moved further discussion about this to a new thread:
    What's # called? Pound? Hash? Number sign?

    Once you do that, you'll be able to create a thread title for your thread. Please pick one that actually gives an indication to others of what your thread is about. Avoid vague attention-seeking titles like Please help! I'm pulling my hair out! or If this is the kind of problem Ubuntu is going to give me, I'm going back to Windows or Help! I'm a noob. Urgent!

    If it's a sound problem, say it's a sound problem. If it's a CD burning problem, say it's a CD burning problem.

    Once you type your thread title and hit Tab, the forum will automatically search for threads on a similar topic. The idea is that many "new" questions have actually been asked and solved before. You can save yourself (and others) a lot of time and energy by just seeing if the answer might be out there for you, so feel free to middle-click these search results and see if any of them help. If they don't, continue to type your initial thread post.

    In your thread's first post, please explain briefly your situation, what you've tried, and any other information that may be helpful to people who are not standing right behind you looking at your computer monitor.

    First of all, it lets those know who were helping you that their help worked.

    More importantly, for other new users starting new threads (remember that automatic search when you start a new thread?), if they see a thread that's marked as solved, they know they're more likely to find a useful solution in that thread.

    To mark your thread solved, go to Thead Tools and select Mark this thread as solved

    Your thread should now have the word [SOLVED] in the subject title.

    Hi,
    I followed this steps but I do not have that option. What should I do to mark it as solved?
