MantisBT Formatting: Markdown ignores HTML tags

Post by Duke »

Please help!

MantisBT 2.24.1
MantisBT Formatting Configuration: All options ON

Markdown works, but HTML tags are ignored (<b> tag is ignored):

Sample:
<b>this will be bold</b>
you should escape &lt;unknown&gt; tags
&copy; special entities work
&amp;copy; if you want to escape it

Output:
<b>this will be bold</b>
you should escape <unknown> tags
© special entities work
&copy; if you want to escape it

Yes, old and ongoing very painful issue.
If you want Mantis to work differently, use or create a plugin. Visit the Plugins forums.
Ask developers to create a plugin that you need - and motivate them to help you!
