formatting text in posts

Post by levron » 2011/11/12 16:52:01

I am a noob at CentOS AND forum posting. I've read the FAQ & Readme First pages but have been unable to locate instructions on how to format text in my request/responses.

For example, if I have copied output results of the route -n command all of the additional spaces/tabs are truncated in the submitted response and I feel that it is necessary to go in and add underscores to make the output easily readable.

Please direct me to the procedures for coherently formatting responses. Thanks.

Please compare my examples in this post (with Xoops Code disabled) to that in the following post (with Xoops Code enabled).

[code]
[ajb@Duo2 ~]$ free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 3915 908 3007 0 39 340
-/+ buffers/cache: 529 3386
Swap: 0 0 0
[ajb@Duo2 ~]$
[/code]

Repeated with [b]Xoops Code [i]enabled[/i][/b] and, thus, showing the effect of those [b][tags][/b].

[code]
[ajb@Duo2 ~]$ free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 3915 908 3007 0 39 340
-/+ buffers/cache: 529 3386
Swap: 0 0 0
[ajb@Duo2 ~]$
[/code]

Can one disable xoops code temporarily so that you can enter [code][/code] tags inside a post and not have them produce a [code] section?

To the best of my knowledge, no. ;-)
