Sharing code in the questions section of Treehouse.

I was wondering, how exactly do you post your code on the questions section? Just want to better explain my coding issues when they occur. Thanks

There is a Markdown Cheatsheet link below every comment that you can click on that shows you how to format your post. I have copied and pasted it here:

Markdown Cheatsheet

Markdown is a short-hand syntax for easily converting text to HTML. Below are some popular examples of Markdown formatting. For more examples reference Markdown Basics for a more detailed overview.

This is an [example link](http://example.com/)

Wrap your code with 3 backticks (```) on the line before and after. If you specify the language after the first set of backticks, that'll help us with syntax highlighting.
