This question already has an answer here:
I have a question about some Markdown code not displaying as expected that I would like to ask on Stack Overflow. If I add the code (which includes triple-back-ticks), it is obviously rendered as an HTML code block in the displayed question. I tried to escape the back-ticks with "\" so that they would display, which works, but I get an error message, "Your post appears to contain code that is not properly formatted as code. Please indent all code by four spaces using the code toolbar button or the CTRL+K keyboard shortcut. For more editing help, click the [?] toolbar icon.".
The error message prevents me from posting the question. How can I include Markdown code in a question?
