# How do you post a solution to a problem?

How do you post a solution to a problem? I don't see a button anywhere for it. I also checked the Help page and didn't find anything.

Thank you! So I guess the problem I am having then, is that in Step 3 I am not actually getting the option for adding a solution, even after correctly answering the question. Is there anything else I can do to get a solution posted?

Hi Ian,

I saw that you wrote up a solution which concluded with "Enter. I am not sure what is going on here. My guess is that it's a bug." Furthermore, you deleted this solution soon after posting it.

We allow a maximum of 1 solution to be posted per person per problem, which is why you are currently unable to post another solution.

If you would like to be un-delete your solution, please let me know. You would be able to edit your solution by clicking on the edit button at the bottom (similar to editing a comment).

Leave it under a comment of a solution. If we like it, we will convert it into a solution!

You can't insert images when replying though right?

I have restored your solution and added a line of "This solution is being edited".

Currently, we do not offer an easy way of uploading an image when making a comment. You could always use the markdown format of ![title](url link) to display an image.

As far as I can tell, you can only post a solution if you have solved that problem.
