Forum members not properly using site or posting their codes etc


#1

TJ, the banner which reminds users to first read the topic of how to properly use the site only appears when not logged in. Perhaps that is why so many users are not properly including the code blocks etc. Perhaps if you can get that banner to appear at all times it might reduce the improperly posted codes in questions? (maybe not)

If not logged in then the top of the page looks like this,

When I am logged in this is what the top of my page looks like

I think that’s because you must have dismissed it at some point by clicking on the X, Larry. The forum then “remembers” that and doesn’t display it to you when you’re logged in. I have the same setup. But for new users it will remain displayed until it is manually dismissed.

@HelixTrader explanation is spot on. That is precisely the way it is designed.
