A few other important tips and tricks  - Some things to keep in mind when posting in the Community Forum

  • The GitHub Support Community now supports Markdown! Use all of your favorite Markdown to display code and share images.

  • Don’t forget to mark accepted solutions to your questions. If another user responds to a question you post in the Forum with a really good answer, mark it as the accepted solution. This helps others quickly navigate to the answer, and also boosts your post higher in the discussion rankings and list.
