  • Our picks

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

      Inline code


      Attachments


      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.

       

      Attachments

      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.
