You may have seen something like the following in your published article or someone else's Expertscolumn article or articles published online:
How and why do these codes publish online in my article? How do I stop this from happening? Do I have to contact Expertscolumn administration and an Expertscolumn moderator to help? Can I delete it from my article or stop it from happening? Here's your answers to all of those questions.
You experience and or see something that triggers a great idea that you want to write an article about. You use your own experiences and knowledge to help formulate a twist on the information you want to discuss in writing an article and or you make a decision to write a document in a newsworthy style. Whatever the case, you do research to find an expert quote, link, website and or article to name a few to put in your article as a citation to help make for a professional read and well written article of facts, figures, opinions maybe and importance and or interest to a global audience. You find or decide to publish your article on Expertscolumn.
No matter how many times you may or may not have used spell check, you decide to use the spell check in EC. This is where both a challenge and or end result of publishing shows funny looking codes and or letters that you did not write in your article showing up in your published article. What's wrong with the Expertscolumn site? When this happens, is it that the online writing community has a glitch in its system that affected your wonderful article writing? No. It was probably due to use of the plain editor. It's right below the box used to write and or paste an article from word. The switch to plain text editor can cause havoc in your article posting if it is not used the way I am about to explain.
After typing or transferring you article from word into the editing box on Expertscolumn, if you decide to use the switch to plain text editor link, you will notice that your article shows the following letters in between words, as well as, paragraph breaks and other characters for making words bold and more:
You see this: . These set of characters can also sometimes make for an article when printed to have some sentences indent a space or two towards the right when it should be all far left to start off each new sentence. When using the text editor to use spell check, which is how you need to activate the spell check, after making any corrections, switch it back off by hitting the link again when your finished editing and then press publish. This will mostly guarantee   that those your article will not show up online looking like   this sentence.
To help take away extra space in Expertscolumn published articles after an article has been published, go to article and hit edit. While in edit, if the article does not show all the codes, hit switch to plain text editor. Look for as many of these codes " " often at the beginning of a sentence and delete. Take time not to erase other words and DO NOT ERASE these codes if they are in all word's such as, don't, doesn't and or can't. Also remove " " when a succession of them are seen before a sentence. You may see something like this inside the editing box.
All of this extra symbols add extra space and should be deleted. By the way, as a writer on EC, if you try to use this as a ploy to take up space to make an article look as if it is longer than it really is, the article will be flagged for deletion. Use the tips in this article to help with making for a clean presentation of article posting on Expertscolumn, help with taking away extra space in between paragraphs, sentences and between links and how to take away zig zag look on the left side of articles posted on Expertscolumn and or indentations that should be in an article such as a sentence starting in the middle of a page when published.
Now you know how codes like   publish online in Expertscolumn, what can be done to stop it and that the company administration and or moderators do not be contacted about this publishing issue because you now know how to delete the codes and or how to stop codes from showing up in a published article.
