    I don't know if this is considered a bug since it's due to user error, but...
    if you insert an invalid html tag in the forum description, it breaks the forum list.
    I think the same if you create a forum link with invalid html.
    Took me a while to figure out what I did wrong. :cry:

    Note the missing " in the description.

    You can enter Any html, including <script> <iframe> and other things like malicious code.
    But yeah, also if you don't close your tags, it can break design.

    <div style="display:none">

    without closing it, should probably give an interesting outcome.

    Yep. Same thing I was describing.
    Although I wonder if there should be something that checks for proper syntax like when you edit a template?

    /closed or merge please.
