The Comment You're Replying To

The new file manager for members is now available. It will let you

  • Upload files
  • Delete files
  • Reduce the size of graphic images
  • Restore backups after reducing graphic image sizes
  • Sort alphabetically, newest first, oldest first, largest first, and smallest first
  • Let you filter the files displayed with a wildcard pattern

Because this file manager is for members in general and not for the editors in particular, it lacks some features that a regular file manager would have. It will not allow the uploading of server-side scripts, the creation of new files, the free renaming of files, or access to directories not reserved for your submission.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:
