Using Code brackets in posts


How do I use code brackets in the forums to encapsulate a large list of info into my posts? I have approximately 800 lines of data to post. Perhaps directions to the linuxquestions help pages on the subject.

Perhaps there is some way to summarize the data.

A file, like a .txt or 'better', can be attached. Click on "Go Advanced".
This and http://termbin.com (like postbin or even github) enable readers to download your 'stuff' and do analysis on it (if they choose to spend the time). Yes, try to excerpt a few 'key' lines, for "TL;dr"!

Play with the Edit post function: select one of your shorter prior posts, experiment a zillion times, then put it back to the way it was! If you click on the "Last edited by <you> <time>" 'footnote', it shows you the history (only accessible to you, not others, so no worry about intermediate messes!)

I wouldn't 'dump' a huge 'inline' code box: readers might not spend the time to dig thru it!

Read this (code and even noparse!): http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...og.php?b=36313

p.s. Welcome to LQ! Good to see your interest in learning the 'ropes'

Please don't do that. If you need to post data or code to support your questions, please reduce it to a clear example which others can quickly understand in order to provide an answer. Remember that everyone here volunteers their time. Asking them to parse through 800 lines of data just to understand your questions is asking a lot from most them! The better you prepare your question, the better answers you will likely receive.

Please see the Site FAQ, and in particular this link, for guidance in asking a well formed question with clear supporting data.

If it is truly necessary to post a large amount of data, then provide it as an attachment or upload it to some location which you can then link to, after explaining why it is necessary - generally not in a first post on a topic.

The link to the help pages for using embedded tags in posts is found at the bottom of every page, BB code.

ok, I will delve more into the 'requests for info' and extrapolate the more useful data specific to my issue to post, way to go... thanks. The original request was for the non-supported hardware issue of the ndiswrapper install, I will have a look at the dmesg and find that info.

I know the internal card is a Qualcomm Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter... funny thing wireless works fine when I boot the Win8 OS, one would expect to be able to use those driver wraps I would have thought.The persnickety of it all...

Instead of 800 lines of code. I snip off what is repeated and not pertinent to the info I wish to provide.

For ndiswrapper

https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=885847

Hope you figured the code tag thing out.

I use as offsite link for large files to post in a thread https://pastebin.com/

Good luck with it.
