Please help us keep these forums consistent and readable by formatting posts. Here we look at the most important formatting.
- Use tags. They can be typed by hand, or the "Full Editor" allows highlighting with the mouse and clicking a button to add the tags.
There are three really important tags: file, cmd, and code.
file for filenames or inline literal text:
cmd for single-line or inline:
[cmd]ls -lh /etc/rc.conf[/cmd]
ls -lh /etc/rc.conf
code for multi-line commands, output, or sections of files:
[code]# cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak
# ls /tmp
# cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.bak # ls /tmp #
- Use capitalization and punctuation.
Only press [Enter] at the end of a paragraph.
Use capital letters at the beginning of sentences, for names, and referring to myself as I.
FreeBSD is not the same as Linux.
