A few easy ways to make life easier for us!
If you are looking for some general guidelines on submitting an article then check out the Submissions Guidelines page. Articles can be sent directly to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or posted instantly on CodeProject using the Article Submission Wizard.
Updating your article
If you posted your article using the Article Submission Wizard
, and it's still in the /useritems/ directory then you can edit the article yourself by clicking on the 'Modify this article' link at the top left of the article.
If you sent the article in to use via email@example.com, or the article has been edited and moved out of the Unedited Section, then follow these instructions:
Updating the downloads or images
This is easy: simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the article and its URL
, and attach the files to your message as a zip file (for downloads) or GIF/JPEG for images. Obviously the smaller the better!
Updating the article text
We reformat each article that is submitted, and try our best to ensure that all grammar and spelling mistakes have been corrected. It is far, far
easier for us if you edit the HTML for your article that we have posted. You can save the HTML for your article using the File | Save menu in your browser. Ignore the stuff at the top and bottom of your page - you will see "Article Starts" and "Article Ends" tags in the HTML that point to where the actual text for your article is. Strip out everything above and below these markers and edit the HTML directly
If you only have a very small addition to make, or want to report spelling/grammar or link errors then you can just send these in as plain text.
You don't need to worry about colorizing your articles. We have a colorizer written by Nick Hodapp, Microsoft's C++/C# Product Manager which takes of this for you. If you article already contains colorization then don't worry - the colorizer cleans out all previous colorizing before recolorizing the entire article.
I submitted an article but haven't heard anything since
Occasionally emails fail to arrive at a destination, so there is a chance that if you've submitted an article and not heard anything back then it may have gone missing. Please allow us a week or so before mailing, since the CodeProject intray is usually in a stay of overflow, so it may take time to get back to you.
