    Default Sticky needed

    How can
    https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...und-Your-Paste
    be made into a forum sticky with the image hosted on the forum instead of my web site?

    Newbies just don't get written instructions for wrapping in code tags.

    That is not 100% true. I am sending several PMs a week about how to do this to new (and sometimes old) members.
    And that works most of the time.

    There is a forum how to area : https://forums.opensuse.org/forumdis...-To-FAQ-Forums

    Images can be posted in various locations. For example ImageBam.

    Images can be hosted on SusePaste I believe:

    For example:


    The above from the How-to is hosted on paste.opensuse.org (I both figured out how-to, and then pasted the above, seconds ago).

    For language one needs to select image. Select a long life (possibly "never" or 3-years). I set the above to expire in one-year.

    I uploaded the image for you:
    Code:
      https://paste.opensuse.org/images/12193734.png
    i.e. hosted on susepaste:



    I am a bit concerned that by doing so, I may have deprived you of the motivation how to try this yourself? Hopefully not.

    MANY THANKS for your support to openSUSE. I greatly fear I am getting too old in this, and losing my inner newb and ability to help.

    @mrmazda.

    While I think this is a very good initiative and I have copied the link of your original thread in the text that I PM to members, personaly I would prefer an example where the prompt/command line and the next prompt line are included. Too many times people post output without showing what they used to get it.

    Of course I could do this myself, but as the credit of this is your's, I prefer you decide if you want to add this suggestion or not.

    Other forums typically allow attaching images.

    Well, the prompt/command line as it is on the terminal.
    Like this:
    Code:
    henk@boven:~> cat /etc/os-release 
    NAME="openSUSE Leap"
    VERSION="15.0"
    ID="opensuse-leap"
    ID_LIKE="suse opensuse"
    VERSION_ID="15.0"
    PRETTY_NAME="openSUSE Leap 15.0"
    ANSI_COLOR="0;32"
    CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:opensuse:leap:15.0"
    BUG_REPORT_URL="https://bugs.opensuse.org"
    HOME_URL="https://www.opensuse.org/"
    henk@boven:~>
    It is two more lines then you show. It will inform the reader what command the poster used and it will in most cases show if he was root or not and what was his working directory. I know one can model a prompt after one's own whishes, but most people, specialy those that do not see the importance of the data they should provide, do not change the prompt and thus it helps.

    I understand well the benefit, and get irritated when posters exclude the cmdline, not so much without a tail. My question was about anonymity in good example. I updated the image on my site. Reload that thread or http://susepaste.org/images/34755729.png to see what you think. If admins like it, the paste needs to replace my image url in the howto thread with the susepaste URL. The 10 minute edit limit prevents me from doing it.

    As oldcpu says, there is https://susepaste.org/
    For temporary stuff. Google and DuckDuckGo are still feeding us hits from more than a decade ago, usually sans obvious clues to hit age. Hits that point to dead URLs are anathema. Pastebin sites I thought were designed for impermanence. I hadn't remembered that susepaste has a never option.

    Changed your post. As well as the URL as the text.

    Looks very fine indeed.
