Just another new guy around here. I have been lurking for quite some time. I do have a question about posting URL's. If I am attempting to show a demo to a problem I have gotten figured out and it would be helpful to the community and it is hosted on my server, is there a problem with this? Also, any tips on getting the code function to work. You all have a great resource here, I thank you for all the help I have gotten thus far. Hopefully, I can return the favor.

Welcome aboard VvvJRvvV. Glad to have you with us.

There's a great post by encyclo in our HTML forum that sums up nicely our linking policy concerning example pages: LINKS and posting CODE - our policies [webmasterworld.com]

Why we don't allow links

At WebmasterWorld, we do things a bit differently from other online forums - and we gain from our approach. Firstly, with so many marketers as members here, we cannot allow people to indicate the sites they are involved with in any way or links to tools etc. or calls to view their profile site. This policy of no urls and no site reviews helps keep the WebmasterWorld forums clean, on-topic and highly usable.

There is a second, equally important, reason why we don't allow links to example pages. Usually, once a problem is fixed, the example page will either disappear completely or will show only the corrected version. That means that the thread was only of value to the one person who posted the initial question. Visitors searching for the solution to a similar problem would find the thread but come against a blank wall, as the original code is absent!

Because of our policy, we all need to work a bit harder to explain our topics in words and snippets of code (short ones, please!), instead of just pointing to an example page. But that extra effort we take benefits everyone who uses the forums.

Our policies have been developed to help you get good responses and to keep the level of information on our forums high for everyone. If you're not certain, the forum moderators are there to help you. Just drop us a line and we can suggest how to prepare your post!
