20x20 Carport Redo

Hello:
Please look at the two pics and give me some advice. I gutted the carport because the previous owner neglected it. They used 2x6 covering a 23 foot span. I am going with 2x10x23. I know I have the fastener wrong on the first trial joist that I installed and would like to know based on the photo the correct way. Lumber yard recommended 12OC for this 20x20 carport. My next issue, you will notice the end of the run has a steel pole and again the previous owner just had the 2x6 sitting on top and not secured. How can I secure the 2x10 which of course are taller. Thanks for all the advice. Mark

Photos posted on the forum are currently not showing up so if you have them on the cloud (like google photos) maybe you could share a link to your photos so that we could view them that way. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Please take a good look at this steel structure and give me suggestions on how to secure 2x10 to this metal for my carport.

What is "the steel structure"? Is it the horizontal round pipe?
