Why are you sending me to a link that does not answer the question? What I want is simple: Quote program code in a blog post. I found your blog article http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2007/09/03/posting-source-code/, and it sends me to a page on "Codes" (which you conveniently lost track of now by sending me from page to page). It says <b>nothing</b> about <b>how</b> to enter program code even though the link specifically directed me their to "learn about the science of doing this" or words to that effect. This is why open source get such a bad rep.
I've tried to chase down various plugins that seem to no longer be supported and/or don't seem to be in the official plugins directory in the first place. Other than using the pre tag, I don't see any built in way to do it.
Thank you for wasting my time, WordPress!
The blog I need help with is whatisthisfile.wordpress.com.
