Workspaces::Docs - Update your article content via ::Workspaces

If you've posted an article on CodeProject then your article's source code, Tasks list and documentation all live in a Workspace connected to your article. You can connect to your code (and anyone else's code!) directly using a Git client, and you can post bugs and suggestions on the article's Task list. You can now also update your article's content via ::Docs in ::Workspaces.

Simply visit your article's workspace (see the links on the left of each article) then click on "Article" on the left and then click the edit icon at the top right of the article. Your changes appear immediately on your workspace but will need to go through the (very quick) moderation process in order to appear as updated text on your CodeProject article.

HTML article contest

It's the last week of our HTML5/CSS3 article writing competition starts this week. The topics of the last pair of articles to be written will be announced today on the competition page. Sharpen your pencils! Or keyboards.

cheers,
