Troubleshooting 101 - How much code should I post? [webmasterworld.com]

  • Fix my code/Do My Homework posts are not all that welcome. This is a discussion board, if you have a problem, try to phrase your post in a manner condusive to discussion of the issue. We want to teach people to help themselves. (Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, you feed him for a life time.

  • Excessive code dumps will be removed. We appreciate that it's often necessary to post code but it is not appropriate to expect other members to debug your whole script. A short snippet that is focused on the problem area is all that is required.
