|Summary||0023994: Markdown in MantisBT notification emails|
Currently when MantisBT sends a notification email, these emails are in plaintext
The markdown language content should be stripped in the case of plaintext emails.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Markdown is generally designed to be readable in text format. This is one of the core prinicples of markdown. I think that removing markdown will not work since the document will loose its structure (e.g. url of a link, the fact that something is meant to be a header, a table, etc). The right thing to do here is to either turn off markdown for your instance or we use the same effort towards moving to HTML emails.
Markdown is very important for me since i use EmailReporting to imports emails to issues/notes. Sometimes those emails contain data tables which are unreadable without markdown support
So HTML emails would be the preferred solution
Personally my interest for notifications are very simple
on any other event only the first 2 lines of the email are needed
As for the readability of markdown. Yes it's readable but the average employee at the company i work at (who knows jack-shit about markdown) will find it anything but readable. They don't know its purpose and will find it be messy
