#119: Let’s Answer Forum Posts! Vol. 2

In this screencast we live answer more forums posts with no planning whatsoever. I don't think we hit a homerun on any of the threads we look at, but that's the lesson. You don't have to have the answers to everything to be a useful forum member. Just a few thoughts and your related experience can be helpful in nudging the original person in the right direction.

    Thanks, Chris. I love this type of post and I hope you keep doing them.

    It’s also awesome that this was recorded just after my first forum post!

    This is a great series. I’m one of those people who spends too long composing forum posts, the starts over, then hits cancel. It’s very motivating to watch someone else write quick, useful posts.

    Perhaps the key is to keep it short and not try to address every aspect of the problem.

Posting Code

We highly encourage you to post problematic HTML/CSS/JavaScript over on CodePen and include the link in your post. It's much easier to see, understand, and help with when you do that.

Markdown is supported, so you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences like this:

  function example() {
    element.innerHTML = "<div>code</div>";

We have a pretty good* newsletter.
