Editing text after using code tags and then submiiting the post.

Recommended Posts

Just learned something on our site Broni. If I post something in code here like

harry@biker:~
$ inxi -xxx -W pecos,tx
Weather: Edited by Rok using Source button in the task bar like Broni suggested. 
  Conditions: 76 F (24 C) - Scattered Clouds 
  Wind: From the SE at 16 MPH Gusting to 25 MPH Humidity: 35% 
  Pressure: 29.83 in (1010 mb) Dew Point: 46 F (8 C) Location: Pecos, Tx 
  Altitude: 787.3 m Time: Tue 27 Mar 2018 08:05:36 PM CDT 
  Observation Time: March 27, 2:55 

Then come back and try to edit the text in side the code box. This forum software does not allow that. All I am allowed is to delete that code box entirely. Which sometimes would not be a preferable thing to do.

Just giving you some info is all.

This is interesting. I'm not sure why it's designed this way but there a way around it.

If you click on "Source" button then you can edit code box.

I'll ask around.

Gotcha :Red-Wink:

You can see my edit in my thread starter post inside the code box. I'll remember that little trick for later. Thanks for mentioning that button. I was too lazy to google search I guess with my power outage taking up my time today.

I actually asked at Invision forum why it's not possible to do it normally. No reply yet.

└─mmcblk0p1 179:1    0  3.7G  0 part 

Edited

harry@biker:~ who is cool As a fool
$ lsblk 
NAME        MAJ:MIN RM  SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda           8:0    0 55.9G  0 disk 
├─sda1        8:1    0 48.1G  0 part /home
└─sda2        8:2    0  7.8G  0 part /
sr0          11:0    1 1024M  0 rom  
mmcblk0     179:0    0  3.7G  0 disk 
└─mmcblk0p1 179:1    0  3.7G  0 part 

Edit again: Hit edit post first.  What I did was 1st left click in the code box I wanted to edit. Then hit the code button twice. The code box pops up and allows the editing to be done then.
