It has been a long time since I didn't post anything to CodeProject, and I have been a bit out of touch with the site for some years. I am planning a new article but I would like to ask a few things first.
The first is about article submission dates[^]. Two years ago there was a problem (at least I understood it as a problem) in which the date you first saved your article (even if if wasn't published yet) was going the be stamped permanently as the date of first publication. This was a bit unfair, since if I was working on an article since January, but only decided to publish it now, at the time I wouldn't be able to join a monthly competition for the current month. I would like to know if the last improvements in the article submission process have changed anything about that.
The second question also regards the article submission form. If I am to add a second author to any of my articles, will he also be able to open and edit the article using the editor?
And the third and last question... If an article with multiple authors wins a monthly competition, must one author take all the prizes, or prizes can be sent to different addresses?
Well, I hope I am not asking too much!
Best wishes for all CodeProject supporters, authors, staff and members
A few of the team are on holidays this week so my apologies for not getting back to you sooner. I'll have to follow up on Q1 next week.
Q2: Co-authors can edit the article. That's why they are co-authors
Q3: Prizes are shared among all authors. Those who freely provide prizes often don't have the ability to split prizes or get hold of more than they have already committed to, so we have to leave this up to the authors of the article as to how they split the loot. However, if a prize pack contains multiple items then we can certainly arrange to split them between members for you.
I am sure Q2 seemed fairly obvious, I was thinking on the possibility that only of the authors would become responsible for sending/managing the article, as it happens in some journals/conferences. Glad to see it is not the case.
I am sorry about the bump; I never occurred to me it could have been a holiday week!
So I am currently writing a new article. I uploaded and inserted some images, but found out one of them was to big for CP standards. I cut of some of the edges and uploaded it again. However, when I insert it into my article I see the old picture within the bounds of the new picture. This makes for some weird effects.
Also it seems I can't add a picture after I've uploaded one. I click the 'Add' button, but nothing happens.
I tried inserting the modified image again (for approximately the fifth time) and it shows correctly now.
I'm afraid this might not be the right forum section, but I was wondering why my Windows Phone Crosswords article is not included in the current Mobile dev competition. Maybe I haven't tagged it correctly?
I have an idea to write a short 'thing' about my experience (as a beginner in most things - if not all!) of choosing a VCS. Only I can't work out what type of 'thing' it is, is it a tip or an article - it felt like a short blog item but I see that's for linking to external blogs rather than a CP hosted blog item.
I've created this article via the Wizard and added the tags but am struggling to find the right section, any chance you could have a quick look at it for me? I wanted to choose Application Lifecyle but can't, or at least there's no section of that category that fits...
It probably falls into the same class as my previous article, i.e. being more like a blog, but I don't have a blog...
Finally, wouldn't mind a mentor having a quick look over it if that's ok?
I posted this [[article]] a day back, after submission I can see all links for download being updated ie. "/Working" removed from the URL.
But as soon as link is updated, files are not available for download. I even lost the image uploaded.
Can somebody please suggest what to be done?
Name="Outputswitch" Category="Assembler Options" HelpUrl="http://www.nasm.us/doc/" DisplayName="Output Switch" Description="Select the type of output format required. Linking Should be disabled for ELF and Binary ,else error will popup">
<IntProperty Name="SectionAlignment" DisplayName="SectionAlignment" Description="The /ALIGN option specifies the alignment of each section within the linear address space of the program. The number argument is in bytes and must be a power of two." Category="Advanced" Switch="ALIGN" Separator=":" F1Keyword="VC.Project.VCLinkerTool.Alignment"> </IntProperty>
basically the previous XML was for nasm.xml and you have replaced the code for nasm.targets which contained all the explanation. Its good no body yet shouted on me.
But could you please update that?
please replace this one
with the previous XML I had messaged [its just above the TABLE] and please recover the old replaced XML for the nasm.targets as it has got the articles heart.
Is this some sort of bug?? if you format the XML, the code after a bad tag/attribute(not blaming MS ) automatically gets stripped out of article !!!!!!!
I just updated my article and after submission the source code download would not work. Clicking the link would display a blank page. I opened the submission wizard again and there were two copies of my zip file. I deleted them both and hand deleted the HTML relating to the link. I added the file back, uploaded the file, and added the file to my article. Now in preview mode clicking the link displays a page that says No download file was specified. Will it be there after submission?
I removed both of the files, made my changes to the article, added the file back, clicked the insert link icon according to the FAQ and still when previewing I get "No download file was specified.". Here's the HTML of the link:
<ulclass="download"><li><ahref="CompleteReadOnlyComboBox.zip">Download source and test project</a></li></ul>

Not only do you steal your articles, you steal your answers as well. This one is stolen from Microsoft Visual C# 2005 Unleashed: Attrib: http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=31Vfys04RjgC&pg=PA43&lpg=PA43&dq=%22The+ArrayList+functions+much+like+an+array,+with+a+few+extremely+powerful+exceptions%22&source=bl&ots=1mJEP3bf1D&sig=dJy8EpQJI-MVknP1dg_gzBBo6II&hl=en&sa=X&ei=ZT7HT-TSJuaA6QGGysWZDg&ved=0CDEQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q&f=false We have found you out. You are a thief of other people's intellectual property.
he post the comment for me how dare to he say me like thief?. who give him right to write like this. is code project is Pete O'Hanlon's private property.
You may want to complain about me here[^]. And, as I said there, this was someone else's work - you stole their work and attempted to pass it off as your own. It's called copyright theft.
is code project is Pete O'Hanlon's private property.
No, but I take that "Site protector" icon by my name very, very seriously, and I don't take kindly to anyone who could cause legal trouble for Code Project. I hate to say it bubba, but I don't think you're going to get much sympathy.

i am sorry. i have not read the cpol carefully my mistake forgive me. it's not my intension. but today i have already posted another articale which was stolen from same book next chapter. in excitment of artical post on site. please don't post this articale.
Ok, as long as you've learned the lesson, there's no hard feelings. Take the time to come up with your own articles - it's a whole lot more rewarding. You get a much better feeling when people praise you for your ideas than for someone else's.
