Topic: Add a [code] modifier to forum posts
For VDJScript and other types of programming languages or command line snippets it would be really helpful if we had a [code] BBcode tag. Right now i use the italics tag, but that still produces hard to read, non-monospace text.

Many other websites and forums have this feature, like Discord, Slack, Matrix, i think IRCs as well, and <code> is already a valid HTML element. It would be an easy and very productive addition in my opinion. =)

juse use the [ code] tag

 
/* here is some "code" */

var 'double' ? set 'double' 0 & repeat_stop 'myrep' & device_side 'left' ? deck left clone_deck right : deck right clone_deck left : set 'double' 1 & repeat_start 'myrep' 400ms 1 & load & set 'double' 0

<square border="2" border_color="yellow" radius="20" >
<pos x="400" y="5"/>
<size width="200" height="100"/>
<gradient type="vertical" color1="red" color2="blue"/> /* color values */
</square>

Simply would be fine to make it readable as well in previous messages when writing an answer
for now it is dark background with dark gray text

Wow either i haven't seen that before, or i forgot about it...
I wonder how it behaves with
inline code
, because that would be even more useful.

Edit: It's a block element, unfortunately. Being able to write code inline would be a big readability improvement i think.
