Useful tool for posting or editing articles

You can use this for posting or editing articles - https://html-online.com/editor/

If you see an article that you like, and want to post it here and ensure that its formatting (e.g. bolds, italics, links, 1, tables, headings/subheadings, etc.) is correct, you can:

1. right-click on the webpage of the article and select view page source
2. Copy the sections of the code that contains the article and its references
3. Paste it in the right-hand box
4. Edit it (e.g. justify text, sort out headings) in the left-hand box, and the code will change in the right-hand box
5. After you've finished editing it, copy the code in the right-hand box and paste it on libcom
6. Underneath the Body box, change the Input format to HTML no line breaks

Thanks for this! BTW in the redesign we want to include an editor like this on the site itself so it's easier to get things looking nice

Quick Question:
So, I guess that we cannot edit content once we post it?

you can, but an editor has to approve the changes
