How can I post source code?
I found this page but it seems to be missing some explanation. None of the formatting I see in the examples show up on my page when I try to add then to my own.
Even when I look at the source of the article it contradicts itself. It tells you to use the backtick tag but it uses the
pretag in its own source code.
I need to have source code in my blog all about code. Do I have to buy something extra or upgrade to have source code formatting in my blog that works?

OK the above post is messed up because I typed in the code tag to refer to the code tag and it tried format the rest as code. I put the pre tag in next and it tried to format again as code.
My question is why doesn’t that work at all on my blog to I need to buy or upgrade something to have source code formatting. Non of the source code formats do anything on my blog.
Hi! Sorry about this. The page was actually a bit broken with the formatting which handily made the important information hidden. :(
The proper way to add sourcecode into your post is using the [sourcecode] shortcode. An example would be:
[sourcecode language="css"] your code here [/sourcecode]
I’ve fixed up the documentation page so it’s all back to normal now.
