    How to post CLI code or commands correctly

    I feel like I must have missed something as I do not know how to post CLI code or commands when responding to threads.
    I know there is a way that the code is separate from the rest of the post, but I do not know how to do it. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    You can write like this manually

    [code]this is the code[/code]

    to make it look like this
    Code:
    this is the code
    or mark (high-light) the code text and use the # icon at the top of the editing window to create the code tags automatically.

    You can just copy & paste code from a terminal. If more than just a few lines you want to include it in code tags.
    While you can manually add code tags, it is often easier to use advanced mode editing which has a lot more options on edit panel than quick reply. Highlight code again like copying and click on the # icon to auto add code tags.
    Sometimes now that I usually am in Quick Reply mode, I click on the quote icon and manually edit QUOTE to CODE at beginning & end.

    This is older from when we have vB3, but I assume most is still the same with the new forum vB4.
