Personal mesages and BB code

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else noticed that when composing a message you have all the usual tools that generate BB code (for bold and quotes and that sort of thing) but when you receive a message none of the BB code is interpreted, it just sits there being displayed in its square brackets. This makes the message more difficult to read rather than less.

 

Bug? Or a configuration setting I've missed?

Or maybe a setting that Paul has missed?

I seem to recall that a while ago (before the most recent Invision upgrade), Paul disabled the interpretation of the BB codes, because of abuse by one or more spammers. I guess he can't just disable certain of the codes -- e.g., hyperlinks, -- while leaving others active.

 

But if he can turn off their interpretation, can't he turn off the editor that puts them in? I don't know. A very different editor is provided for composing emails sent through Concertina.net. Couldn't that editor also be the one provided for PMs? I suppose it's possible that Invision doesn't provide that option, but I don't know.

 

I suspect we'll soon be getting a reply from Paul. I'm pretty sure he follows this subForum.
