XF 1.2 BBCodes for User Upgrades instead of HTML?


Well-known member
I noticed only html is allowed in user upgrade description content, is there a option anywhere to allow bbcodes instead of html?

Or will this feature already be in 1.3 and no need for this?

I understand that bb code is used for posts and unsafe to use HTML, but for the user upgrade section account/upgrades when people visit the description content I can use HTML but not BB Codes.

So is it safe to use HTML for user upgrades since that is the only option?

I am just trying to see how I can use BB Codes instead of HTML when writing up the description content.

Yes, you as an administrator are providing the content for display on your site. This is considered safe. User generated content is where raw HTML is unsafe. You'll need an add-on to allow you to use BBCodes.

If you are unsure how to create content using HTML, create it as a post using BB Codes.
Then view the source, copy and paste the HTML.
