With the exception of [quote] BBCode has been disabled on the Webmaster Forums. The downtime earlier was me running a script over all the posts in the forum, and user signatures, to get rid of the stuff.

The BBCode and HTML filters were really interfering with each other, and no amount of fiddling would fix it. Since we're a Webmaster forum, everyone should be ok with basic HTML, particularly since we have a new toolbar to help.

If you've got any questions, or find any problems, post them here! Thanks, and sorry for the downtime. Smiling

Hmm. I wish I had read this before trying to post today. Wink
Anyway, I am glad you did this. I don't like BBCode either, although nearly all forums I subscribe to require it.

Thank you.

Cordially, David

Sounds good. I prefer html anyhow.

JeevesBond:
You may like to update the Formatting help. Under More information about formatting options you still indicate BBCode for quoted text(!)

Or is that intentional?

No worries, I know that's going to confuse people and ideally it will be changed. Smiling
