    @cornell,
    awfully sorry for the link that didn’t work. it was one of the numerous test posts and perhaps i deleted it absent-mindedly. i have the “code” in a grey box here:
    http://shongjog.wordpress.com/tag/test4blog/page/3/
    and it works on my end at least!

    one thing though, i can’t get the actual code to appear. i get the picture (that the code is supposed to link to) appear again the box, instead of the code.
    http://shongjog.wordpress.com/tag/test4blog/

    i will keep my fingers crossed.

    AND THANKS to everybody for all the responses.

    i think i will accept failure in this “project”.

    if i succeed i will share the secret formula here of course.

    @nosy
    if you don’t mind displaying your code plainly, without a box, you can do it as per mark’s suggestion. it really works! look here!
    http://shongjog.wordpress.com/tag/test4blog/page/7/

    AND IT IS NOT even difficult. just paste your code between and

    of course you do remember what you told me; no spaces between the tags!

    #127433

    heck, i don’t understand this system at all. my tags vanished.

    i will explain in a different way,

    remember the way you explained to me blockquote in this thread? paste your code just like that. but SUBSTITUTE blockquote with code.

    #127434

    like this maybe.

    if the code doesn’t show properly don’t kill me! i am doing it within backticks.

    <code><div style="text-align:center"><A HREF="http://www.wordofblog.net/redirect.php?id=4479"><IMG SRC="http://www.wordofblog.net/ad_images/44793330.jpg" BORDER=0></A><BR> <FONT SIZE=1><A HREF="http://www.WordofBlog.net/info.php?id=4479">Want this badge?</A></FONT></div></code>

    IT WORKED!

    do notice the CODE at the beginning and the end.

    and IT APPEARS IN A BOX!
    sigh,
    if only life was so simple back there in my blog. :(

    #127436

    What are backticks again?

    backticks are the symbol on the same key as the ~

    To the left of the number one and above the tab key.

    They look like `

    Backticks are on the same key as ~ on US keyboards. On others it is often the top left key.

    @nosysnoop,

    `I would start another blog as a place to put all the MySpace layouts I’m making but I don’t want to have to post all that code though unless I use the More tag. ‘

    i don’t know if it will suit your need, but you can actually have the MORE tag right here at wp .com! BUT… there is a but (so what else is new in wp ;)

    you can have the MORE tag automatically for any post if you choose the theme FADTASTIC.
    ONLY that theme is er, more-compatible.

    I AM BACK AGAIN! I HAD TO COME BECAUSE I HAVE BREAKING NEWS!

    tra-la-la-la-la
    tan-tan-tara-tara-tara

    yes to-whom-it-may-concern, i am a ‘child’, but don’t YOU ever feel like a kid in a candystore?;)

    just out of curiosity i was trying out tables in a widget. AND a table works in a widget!

    to take a pick just click:
    http://shongjog.wordpress.com/
    notice the very last “graphic” that says “bd rocks”. it is NOT an image, but a “table”.

    this is a big deal for me, or anybody who want to customise their widget easily.

    now, before anyone asks why on earth someone would want a table in a widget, THINK!
    i sure have a lot of tricks up my sleeve that i can manage to pull off ONLY if i can utilise tables.

    so at last we can agree with abbydonkrafts that tables aren’t evil. no, not at all! :) :) :)

    Tables aren’t necessarily evil if they’re used properly.

    My one attempt at getting a table to work in my blog was a dismal failure. I ended up displaying the local file in Firefox (which worked perfectly), taking a screen cap, cropping it and then displaying the final image.

    #127446

    WOO HOO!

    I DON’T KNOW WHAT I’M GONNA DO. I AM BESIDE MYSELF WITH JOY.
    SO I WILL SCREAM… YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    okay enough!

    you got to see this, all you code-loving people, nosy, katm and myspacelayouts and et al,
    here i am nearly going insane trying to make code appear in a box in one of my blogs, and guess what!

    I HAVE IT ALREADY IN ONE OF MY OTHER BLOGS!
    i don’t even remember when i made this mistake, i do remember seeing it once and couldn’t find it out again later, since i didn’t know it was in the wrong blog. i thought it was some voodoo at wp that made it appear momentarily.

    BUT NO! IT IS STILL THERE!
    CODE IN A BOX!
    CODE IN A BOX!
    CODE IN A BOX!

    AND IT HAS SCROLLBARS!
    and i thought you can’t have those without js.

    to take a peek just click:
    http://shomoshor.wordpress.com

    IMPORTANT: i think it was a theme issue.
    in http://shongjog.wordpress.com i used andreas09.
    and in http://shomoshor.wordpress.com it is garland.

    my my, what other secret torments does wp have in store for us?
    seriously, there ought to be a clear-cut definition abut what is allowed and not allowed in a theme. all these days wasted just bcos of a theme issue :(

    one last thing, please don’t ask me how i got it done. honestly speaking, i don’t know!
    i was fiddling with too many things to remember what did the trick.

    when i figure it out, i will post the secret formula in this thread.

    —————————————————————
    can i make a request?
    the box looks sort of skinny, as if it is squinting.
    does anyone know how to make it bigger?

    #127447

    i don’t think i’m smart enough to pinpoint the magic word. i am pasting the whole code between backticks. if anyone knows what enables the code to appear in a scrollable box, dp share. PLEASE!

    GEE WHIZ!
    the scroll bar is showing HERE also!

    i am totally hypnotised.

    #127449

    seriously i don’t get it.

    the same code… it makes the box so small in my blog, and here it is so big!

    why me :(

    #127450

    @nosysnoop and others,
    God created the universe in 6 days.
    and it took me 9 days to solve this mystery at long last.
    so, i am not doing too bad i suppose! ;)

    The magic word is “textarea”. whatever code you want to put in a box, just put it between textarea tags.

    and you can have a textarea of any size, you just have to change the params.
    i will paste the code so you will know what params you have to change.

    in case it doesn’t display properly you are most welcome to see the code over in my blog:
    http://shongjog.wordpress.com/2007/07/31/testing-big-textarea/

    <textarea name="textarea" cols="50" rows="15" wrap="VIRTUAL"><div style="text-align:center"><A href="http://www.wordofblog.net/redirect.php?id=4479" mce_href="http://www.wordofblog.net/redirect.php?id=4479"><IMG src="http://www.wordofblog.net/ad_images/44793330.jpg" mce_src="http://www.wordofblog.net/ad_images/44793330.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><BR> <FONT SIZE=1><A href="http://www.wordofblog.net/info.php?id=4479" mce_href="http://www.wordofblog.net/info.php?id=4479">Want this badge?</A></FONT></div></textarea>
