Profiles & HTML

Robert Lauriston Jun 29, 2006 04:44 PM

Looks like today profiles don't support HTML, so mine looks like ass.

Is this a deliberate change or accidental?

    It doesn't even format URLs as links as in posts.

      It was a deliberate change.

        If anyone who put html in the proflie is having the profile display in an odd place on their page, it is because once HTML support was removed, long html statements expanded the size of the profile box.

        In other words mine dropped to the bottom of my page after my bookmarks.

        I saved off the HTML in a word document should this ever be enabled again and removed it from my profile.

        The profile now correctly appears at the top of the page where it started.

        I am ONLY posting because I reported a problem in my profile page and if it made its way onto any type of problem report, removing the html fixed that problem.

        Also, if anyone else reports the same problem, that is probably the reason.
