  • Our picks

    • There are three ways you can posts scripts, these are:

      Inline code


      Download system

      Each has different advantages and disadvantages. In general you should use:

      Inline code - for short code snippets

      Attachments - for more complicated code larger than a page.

      Downloads system - for projects or complex libraries


      Inline Code

      Best for entering short snippets of code

      Easiest for other users to see

      May be accidentally modified by forum upgrades or when re-editing your post - it's happened before...

      Inline code is entered using the "Add Code" button in the toolbar and after posting appears with syntax highlighting like this:

      ; This is some AutoIt code
      MsgBox(4096, "Message", "Hello there!")

      Code over around 50 lines will appear in a scrollable box. At this point it becomes more difficult for other users to work with and you should consider an attachment instead.



      Best for long pieces of code, entire programs, or multiple files

      Unlikely to be accidentally lost or modified by forum upgrades or when re-editing your post

      Counts against your global attachment allocation

      Can be seen in the "username / My Attachments" part of your profile, along with the number of downloads

      Multiple attachments can be added to a post. As attachments are stored as complete files in the filesystem, they are more robust than inline code snippets.


      Downloads System

      Best for very long and complicated projects or libraries that are of significant use to the community

      Uses a different part of the forum that is optimised for file downloads and features screenshots, change logs, download counts, etc.

      Does not count against your global attachment allocation

      This can be accessed here: Downloads System.
