Q: How do I use the post editor? What is the purpose of all these buttons?
A: The post editor consist of the text editing area, the toolbars and the statusbar with the tabs. Some of the toolbar buttons toggle various characteristics of the font of the selected text (Bold, Italic, Underline, Strikethrough, Superscript, Subscript), some toggle the style of the current paragraph (Insert Bullet List, Insert Numbered List), and some insert new visual elements or new paragraphs of different styles (Insert Horizontal Rule, Insert Heading, Insert Subheading, Insert Text, Insert Quote, Insert Code, buttons with the smilies and the Insert Symbol button together with the symbol combo). The Insert Link button converts the selected text into a hyperlink taking the URL from the Link URL field. If the Link URL field does not contain a valid URL (eg, its text contains a space), the Insert Link button does nothing. TheRemove Link button converts the selected link into ordinary text, and the Remove Formatting button clears all formatting from the selected text. The tabs allow switching between the visual editing view and raw HTML view.
Q: How do I make my code snippets use syntax highlighting?
Q: How do I attach files to a post? Is there a limit on the number of files I can attach?
A: You can attach files when composing the post or when editing it. There is no limit on the total number of files, but you can only attach up to 4 files at once (so if you want to attach 6 files, attach first 4 files when composing the post, then edit the post and attach the remaining 2 files). The size of a single file is limited to 4 MB.
Q: Why I can no longer edit my posts?
A: You can only edit your posts within 15 minutes after they have been submitted. This is a measure to protect against forum abuse.
