This forum is for any and all questions for Code Project Article Writing:
Have a question about writing an article?
Having trouble posting?
Blog aggregation not working?
Not sure about your article topic?
Is your article still pending?
Is there a crazy formatting problem in your article?
Not sure how to update your article?
Having problems with the submission wizard?
Need help making a change to an existing article?
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[^]
Interview question articles are actually quite popular. I don't actually understand their value, though, because every company has it's own set of questions they may ask and simple Q&A format might provide a canned response, but fails the reader if the interviewer asks a follow up, clarifying question.
If you wish to provide some Q&As then ensure the answers are comprehensive and provide links to articles that go deep.
Also, post as a Reference article, not as a standard article (top right of the submission wizard allows you to change the article type).
It appeared to have a file attached so I published it in hopes that it would have the code -- it doesn't appear to. I wouldn't be surprised if the file hadn't been uploaded, but if it had been and someone can attach it, that would be great.
You'll never get very far if all you do is follow instructions.
Earlier today I published a new verion of my article at:
Some dude called rage said it's title was not descriptive and I pointed out to him that it had a summary.
Now all comments are gone and nothing is happening...
I was happy that the article released, but unfortunately it - AGAIN - in the wrong category...
The category should be (and was) HTML / CSS - HTML5/CSS3 Article Contest.
Please Marco (@marcobertschi) if you can fix for me...
I'm not questioning your powers of observation; I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is. (V)
I tried to submit an article. It was approved but a comment was made. I then edited the article (according to changes) and submitted changes. I noticed that a link that I used was broken. So I edited it again (and submitted). I was then notified that it had automatically changed category. So I edited it again and submitted. I was receiving lots of positive feedback (like the first time) but no approval. So I thought that the multiple unapproved versions were the problem. So I thought of rolling back the changes (to delete the mistakes) but that just made another version. I then edited it again to be correct. Here is the link to the article The Idiot's Guide to Modern Web Design Part 1 / 12[^] Version 8 is the correct version. This is totally a beginner mistake I know I might be a bit impatient but I am worried that the wrong version will be judged for the HTML5 Article Contest. This is my first article Please Help
