Doesn't show i.e. IRC names correctly

edited November 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Hi,
We noticed when IRC logs are pasted onto threads in vanilla the nicknames are being omitted. It's probably due to "<" and ">" indicating bb code or HTML tags. It also keeps us from writing documentation like man pages which often contain "<" OPTIONAL ">". Wouldn't it be better to validate if its a know tag/BB code?

    Yes that is correct, by default vanilla parses html

    use &lt; and &gt; to display < and > respectively

    If you want to bbcode you can enable that. However I personally I wouldn't, people are much more used to xhtml these days, and it is more versatile. than bbcode, which isn't standardised.

    Using an editor it can handle the formatting for you, as you are not entering source.

    grep is your friend.

    BBCode or Markdown can be turned on by changing
    $Configuration['Garden']['InputFormatter']

    Valid settings are: Html, BBCode, Markdown

    The button bar on this site supports all three.
