>> Making your layers viewable
If you need to post large portions of code, it's easier to make your layer(s) and/or style viewable. Now it does NOT mean that you have to give anybody your password. If a person asks you do that then he/she's a moron. DO NOT EVER GIVE YOUR PASSWORD.
That being said what should you do?
Put into the top of your layer(s) and compile. Then go back to the Your Layers page. In front of each layer you have a number. Give it to the person who's helping you.
If you need to give your style ID, you'll find it next to your style's name in the Your Styles page.
She/He will then create a copy of your layer and work on it. Once everything's okay they will give you a link where you'll be able to see your 'new' layer.
>> Posting code
LiveJournal automatically interprets any HTML code you may write. For example if I write in a comment or in an entry <b>this text should be bolded<b> to bold my text, it will appear as this text should be bolded once I've posted my comment/entry.
So how do you do when you want to write <b>this text should be bolded<b> just like I've done above to make the code visible?
Characters which are interpreted as HTML have to be written with name codes. For example < corresponds to < and > corresponds to > 'Less than' and 'greater' than in fact.
You can see here a table which will give your all the corresponding codes for these symbols. BTW, see all the little
Fortunately, you can use a wonderful tool: HTML for LiveJournal.
Write or copy/paste your code normally with all the < and = and things like that then click on the magic button (Modify HTML) and it will give you the corresponding gibberish.
Copy/paste the mess in your entry and ta-da everybody can see your code now.
Don't forget to use lj-cuts when you post code in an entry.
