I learned from other codecademy users on the forums to use backticks(above the tab key on a keyboard) like this to post code with syntax highlighting:
on the forums, and it used to work all the time for me, but now it only works in some cases
like it worked here, but trust me, there are times when I tried it. And the text in the backticks just disappears, both in the preview window and when the post is posted.
Also as you might have seen, the title of this discussion says
but the "` is actually supposed to be three backticks.
Why is this happening?
