Hello Moderators,

Can we do automate the following instead of saying repeatedly.

1. To restrict the characters upto 80 characters only per line
while posting messages and
2. Format of the PL/SQL code if it is present.

Thanks and Regards,
Ramesh V

And how exactly would we get automatic formatting to work?
It's not like using [code] tags is difficult. It's clearly explained.

I also asked that, like on AskTom, if someone does not click on a "Format" button the post is put in Courier-like font and automatically splitted at 80 characters per line.

Even if it is clearly explained few read it. Sad

Regards
Michel

Add a giant CAPTCHA for all newer members which is always

"I WILL FORMAT MY CODE AND POST APPROPRIATELY. YES, THAT MEANS CODE TAGS. I PROMISE."


Make 'em type that a few times Very Happy

Make them type it in code tags to make sure they learn how to do it Smile
