Hi!

Sometimes you need to put formatted ObjectScript in a post.

To do that put the code into the editor, select it and click on ObjectScript button.

Once you save/preview the post the code will be highlighted as ObjectScript.

See the gif:

If you use Markdown editor, you can highlight ObjectScript if you place the code inside two tags: <pre><code> .... your code... </code></pre>

Hi!

You can insert Image in a post with via three ways:

1. Upload it from disk

Drag-n-drop image from your disk to a post and adjust the width after that.

2. Copy and paste from clipboard

Copy the image to a clipboard (Ctrl+C) e.g. from another web page or from any text editor and paste it into the post.

See how it works:

Hi, Community!

Today there are two main settings for your email notification subscriptions.

1. Subscribe to all new posts, all comments, all answers

You can do it in your subscription settings in the Content Types. Click on My Account, go to Subscriptions and click on Content types tab:

 

In this case, you'll get only one notification for every new article or question posted on DC and every answer and comment if you checked this option.

Here are some recipes with this option.

1. Receive all the new posts notifications (without answers and comments in it):

Turn on Post checkbox.

2. Receive all the new posts, answers and comments notifications (literally to get everything)

Hi, Community!

We have a lot of good articles posted on Community to the date. Even more questions with great answers (see the stats). Thank you for your contribution!

So sometimes it worth to use search to find an answer or the best practices or the post you remember was posted but cannot find.

Hi, Community Members!

The goal why we are posting questions on Developer Community is to get the answer.

Here is very simple guidelines document on how to ask questions which would get answers.

When you post a question you need to feel 3 fields: title, body, and group. And tags.

1. The Title

A good title should contain the brief description of your problem - it should not be longer than 80-90 symbols.

But brief doesn't mean one word. These are not very good titles for questions: Cache, Ensemble, Peace, World.

Examples of good questions:

Querying a list property with SQL

How to Ignore Headers on a CSV File when Using Record Mapper

Hi!

Today DC supports the notifications for the posts' updates. It means if someone changes the post text, title, group or tag you can be notified about that.

But this notifications just inform that there were updates, but do not show what exactly was changed in the post.

So through this, you can get the notifications for the posts from previous years without any reason what's happened.

I would suggest to turn off this types of notifications until we'll implement the details in notifications, what exactly was changed in the post and why did you get it. 

To turn off the update notifications go to your subscriptions settings and turn off the updates triggers in the Content Types tab.

Like it is shown in this screenshot:

Hi, Community!

We've updated Developer Community (DC) portal and here are some good news.

Now you can insert in your post highlighted parts of code. It works with help of highlight.js library.

To illustrate it I took some code snippets from Fabian's article.  

 
Method OnPreServer() As %Status
{
 set ..SharedConnection=1
 set room=$GET(%request.Data("room",1),"default")
 set:room="" room="default"
 if (..WebSocketID'="")
  {
   set ^CacheTemp.Chat.WebSockets(..WebSocketID)=""
   set ^CacheTemp.Chat.Room(..WebSocketID)=room }
 else
  {
   set ^CacheTemp.Chat.Error($INCREMENT(^CacheTemp.Chat.Error),"no websocketid defined")=$HOROLOG
  }
 Quit $$$OK
}

as described in How to post an article from Word or Google Docs, you can use the Paste from Word button to paste content you have copied from a Word or Google Docs document into a Developer Community post.

this worked well for me pasting from Word 10 documents, and retained most (though not all) of my Word formatting. i did have one problem, however, and wanted to pass on my workaround

2. Copy all the text in Word o GDocs to the buffer.

3. Click the button Paste from word (see the shot):

4. Paste the text to the opened window an press OK.

 

5. See the formatted text with images in your post. Save it as a draft or post it.
