As a basic overview CodeProject articles have a certain layout to follow, so that users can learn the most from them. Each article attempts to answer the following questions: What problem does this solution solve? How does this help someone else? How does the code actually work? What is going on inside the code snippets?
Here is a submission from a first time author who did a terrific job, just to give you a basic overview of what a beginner article might look like: Avoiding InvokeRequired[^]
You cannot. At CodeProject we weave a pleasurable mystery about where love comes from. If someone votes a 2 or a 1, they have to say why, but you may never discover the identity of 4's and 5's unless they choose to comment.
If you get stuck during that process, I'd be happy to help. Please keep in mind that blog entries are really meant to be like articles in terms of style and breadth. I'd be happy to look at your blog to see if it is a good match.
I would say the primary benefit of sharing your blog with CodeProject is additional exposure.
Unfortunately it seems there was an error during the process of your submission and your article/code was not received. Would you mind emailing me the full article and code in a .rar, or renamed .zip (ie .notzip) file?
My article was approved an published earlier today. Then about 40 minutes later I received an email saying my article "has been deleted because it has an inappropriate content as judged by our readers and editors".
The rejection email came from Webmaster@codeproject.com with the note that this is an unattended email box. How to contact the editor team to find out what specific content in my article is inappropriate so I can revise it?
The problem with the article is that you are an employee of StresStimulus discussing your product and some of its features. As explained in the email, we do have a place for that and if you were interested in posting this content, or content like this, I'd be happy to put you in touch with someone from our Sales team.
Thanks for explaining. This article is about adding a close button to a tab control. It includes code that I developed for StresStimulus, a load testing tool. The reason I mentioned StresStimulus is to explain to readers that this code works reliable in the heavily loaded environment. But the article was not meant to be about StresStimulus. Therefore, instead of moving it to a different place I would like to publish it in the code section.
What is the best way to do that? Do I have the option to remove the sentences about StresStimulus and resubmit it? Or do I need to create a new article by removing these sentences?
I have one more question regarding an option similar to Product Showcase option.
My understanding is that Product Showcase section contains information on products and services where readers will get information on available solutions. Because my article includes complete source code, which by itself provides a complete solution for developers, the context of the Product Showcase section would not be right for it.
I saw a number of articles in the Code section where an author will include a link to the product/ company where he/she works. For example http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/303686/Windows-Azure-Diagnostics-Performance-Counters-In
Considering that my article follows last 4 out of 6 rules that you explained, is there a way for me the publish my article in the Code section? Can I discuss this option with your sales department and if yes, how to get in touch with them?
I have deleted that article you mentioned. We get a lot of articles; it's difficult to catch them all.
All the rules must be adhered to for the editorial section. The sales team really only deals with the Product Showcase side of things. If you were interested in that route I would consider writing a different article, in which case I would get them to reach out to you.
