How do I format text on the forum?

A few minutes ago I posted about a failed installation but for some reason entering the result of a command between did compact the text to make it easier to read. Where did I go wrong, please?

If you want to mark something as code your tags need to be in separate lines before and after, what you want to mark as code.
Looking at your post the end tag [/code] is not in a separate line. Just edit your post and move the end tag to a seperate line.

Hi!

Welcome to the forum :enos_flag:

No worries with the formatting. I have edited your post to shift [/code] in a new line. The post now looks ok :+1:

I know it is a bit old, but it basically still applies.
