    The editor for making posts(and replying of course) seems to strip out a lot of tags, like span, font, even center tags. Does it strip everything out and only spews out simple text? Even if you make your font big and red, it comes out as plain text like this, but if you edit your post, your text big and red in the editor.

    We have input and output filters.

    Input filters actually change your text before it goes to the DB while output filters change the text as the service layer reads it from the DB.

    We strip out a lot of tags for a reason. We're talking about this, however, and may make changes in the future.

    Would figure only the bad ones like expression() in styles and stuff like that would be stripped out. Just find it odd that most everything seems to be yanked. Don't see what harm can come from a <font size="5"> tag.

    You're not the first one to ask for this and I'm sure Minh, Jamie and others will post in this thread when they see it Smiley

    Taking everything but what you see in the editor's bar was intentional but that doesn't mean it's final choice. We're continuing to think about this as we move forward.

    If you're a bit creative, you can work around the limitations of the editor and create
