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[^]
My blog is being consumed via an RSS feed. There are some posts that really don't belong here. Is there anything I can do to prevent them from being consumed or displayed? If I delete the article on this site it just get consumed again in the next poll of my RSS feed.
i am writing a code to plot a coordinate(x,y) according to the universal grid system in a picturebox. (0,0) is plotted in the centre of the picturebox. i am not able to plot the coordinate according to the actual points in the map, they get plotted at the wrong points. i do not know how to proceed further with the map. any help in this regard is highly appreciative.
You have approved an update of my article[^], where I have added a section, but its "Updated" date was not updated and the updated article was not shown in the list of updated articles. Why can this happen?
I have quite a few articles here on CP consumed over the last few years. However, I just noticed that they aren't getting consumed anymore. The only thing that comes to mind is that I've set only to show excerpts on the category listing - could this be the reason why the posts are not being consumed?
We can't pull the content if the content isn't shown
At this point it is the only solution, but it would be fairly straightforward for us to add an option to have items in your feed point to a "content" page. It would be fairly low on our priority though, unfortunately.
edit: I was too quick to jump the gun I guess. And, I guess you guys were indeed changing some still since the last time I posted - I just want to confirm that now I received the mail from Submit@codeproject.com informing me that one post (out of three that were pulled) so far was successfully published.
Anyways, I guess this thread can now be successfully closed ; below is the previous reply, obviously
Thanks for taking the time to reply.
Sure, I understand, and what I did was I changed the category listing to include the full post content and I actually got a second email today saying that: "Your article feed Nikola Brežnjak's Blog has been successfully consumed at 1 Feb 2015. 3 new articles were pulled.".
Now, first thing which looks strange to me is the date, and second, more important thing is that I usually saw those posts that were actually pulled in and I could see them that they're in the "approval" phase. Also, when the post would be "approved" I would see something along the lines of:
23 Sep 2014 9:22pm 10 Author Technical Blog consumed Technical Blog Custom YES/NO dialog.....
Now, I don't see any of that.
So, I would appreciate if you could explain this to me or look into it if it's some kind of a problem.
I found a few typos in my article...Even those are more funny than serious, I would like to fix it...However, updating the article will add it to the next day's 'Updated' list where actually on content has been updated...
It is ethical to do so?
Skipper: We'll fix it. Alex: Fix it? How you gonna fix this? Skipper: Grit, spit and a whole lotta duct tape.
Hi, there. Today I've submitted my article and it was approved, but I've got no votes for the article. Before, I've already submitted another article and initially there was one vote of 5. Why my article was approved with no votes for?
Hi. I'm actually posting articles to help others from my experience. I'm really sorry for my question posted at the forum. I've raised this question solely for inquery purpose: what is actually the difference between articles.
