Couple things about the new Code Modules

    The code modules are wonderful. Here are a few suggestions:

    Some of the formatting options (VB, C++, etc.) don't handle some comment delimiters properly. If an apostrophe is detected, the line of code is broken at the apostrophe and several blank lines are inserted. It disrupts the flow of the code.

    A horizontal scroll bar is needed at the top of the module. Currently there's one at the bottom, but the user wouldn't know it's available without scrolling down to the bottom of the module. If the module is long enough, the scroll bar isn't useful at all because the user would have to scroll vertically, scroll horizontally, then scroll vertically back up again. Too much navigating.

    Hi Kadmiels, Nicomp,

    Thanks very much for the feedback.  I'll add this to my queue.

    I'll post here when it's been fixed.

      cool! One more question...

      In the Hub Metrics, does the word count reflect the contents of the Code Module or not?

        I think I answered it myself. The answer appears to be 'no'. This seems extremely unfair to me. My code has relevance to the hub. it also contains tons of comments. A programmer learns from the code module; it's not there just to make the hub seem longer.

        Can we talk about this?

          Hi Nicomp,

          The Hub Metrics count is for information purposely only.  It is meant to help authors who are trying to write a hub of a certain number of words.

          As far as I can tell, there's no reason for including the code capsule as part of the word count. 

          I agree with you that there is high value in well written code but I'm unclear on the problem that you are seeing by not including code capsule in the word count.

          Thanks,

          -Larry

    Hi Larry,

    I assumed that the word count had some impact on bub score calculations or on how Google indexed the hub. My bad!

      Hi Nicomp,

      I have not had a chance to get to it.  I am working on a new feature now that will hopefully be released next week.

      I have it high on my queue so I should be able to start work on Monday.  I'll post on this thread when I have found a fix.

    Hi Nicomp,

    I've fixed the code capsule comment issue.  The fix will go out with the next update to the web site.

    As far as a horizontal scrollbar at the top, that would not be standard css so I will not be adding that requested feature.

    Please let me know if you find any more bugs or have any more suggestions for improving the code capsule.

    Cheers,

    -Larry
