If you look under the box you are typing your question in (or a comment or answer) there is a link that says Markdown Cheatsheet. This gives you info on how to format your code in the forum. Basically just add 3 backticks ``` on the line before and after your code. After the first 3 backticks you can type what type of code it is (html, css, etc) and that helps with the highlighting.
