How to insert code block in comment

  • retag add tags

I'd like to know how to insert code blocks in comments and if it possible to have the save editor for comments as you have for answers? I understand that comments should be small in general, but what if I want to have both q&a and discussions in the same place?

If you use Markdown, configure the comment editor to be the same as the Q&A editor (in the future version this will be the default too). Then add the code blocks the same way.

What you mean by default? a lot will prefer text-only in comment, so if it an option to change at any time it's better. Also in Markdown for comment you can use h1 h2 h3 which is a bad idea in comments, I think we should allow only **Bold** *Italic* `code` text link ..
