Use of code tags


Sorry, I've been busy.

Yes as far as I'm concerned and others seem to agree we're migrating towards the use of <code> tags for commands, but for logs on multiple lines <pre> tags or {{prebox}} (the latter to add other tags like colours) are preferred.

The quotation marks should be old edits or stuff I didn't notice when checking changes, changing those to use <code> tags is encouraged and preferred.

Okay great, that's good! Thanks for taking the time to reply!
Do you have any objection to me creating a convenience template to make it easier for folks to use <code> as required? Perhaps something like Template:c or Template:co, such that writing <code>Type this</code> becomes Template:C.

Using templates has issues that can be hard to find and fix. For example you can't include some characters like | = and possibly others that will mess the output. Fail:

 alias .reference Sailing bonuses: sailing 332 

Using {{Escape template list}} templates:

 options cols = 1000 ; {alias .reference Sailing bonuses: sailing 332 | perception 411 | direction 402  

It's more robust and simple to use <code></code> tags and more readable as well.

Ah I gotcha, yeah, I see how that's different for this wiki than others I've contributed to. 👍
Thanks for your time and advice! --Djonni (talk) 00:54, 4 May 2022 (EDT)
