I know people don’t read.
I know people don’t read the rules.
But damn it’s annoying when people post screenshots and photos of screens.
If it continues, I will have to turn off image posting for trust level 0.
READ THE RULES PEOPLE
Images cannot be searched by google.
Images are a pain in the butt to read.
Images take up more space on my server.
And to everybody who IS following the rules: Please help me by asking anybody who doesn’t to edit their posts and do it the right way. Link to this post if they need reasons.
EDIT: For people who don’t know how, here are some instructions for how to cut-n-paste text. In general, it’s two steps “copy” and “paste”.
If you want to post an Arduino error message, there is usually a button specifically for that on the right side of the red bar in the middle of the window. It only shows up if compilation actually fails though.
If you wish to copy something else, just highlight it with the mouse, and then ether select “copy” from a menu, or use the keyboard shortcut. The keyboard shortcut is Command-C on mac, and Ctrl-C on Windows / Linux. Note that in some places, like the Arduino Serial Monitor, there is no menu option for “copy”, but the keyboard shortcut still works.
Generally you can paste text anywhere you can type text, but right now we’re talking about how to paste it into the forum in a good way. To do that, type three backticks (`) on a separate line, then press enter to go to the next line. Then press the keyboard shortcut for paste, which is Command-V for mac and Ctrl-V for Windows / Linux. If you need to, press enter to go to the next line, then add three more backticks to signify the end of the pasted text.
If the above doesn’t work, then feel free to use screenshots instead.
