I really dont know who the op on dis forum is. I like to pose facts and info from other sites on here. I wanted to know why html code is off, and if it is no biggie, can you turn it on or is it that I dont have a subscription?

Probably will be beaten by Joe, but HTML is disabled because it can be exploited to do bad things to everyone who views the forum. Doubtful it'd be turned on. If you wanna post stuff from other sites, just copy/paste or link it using the [url] tag.

Yeah there are security issues with allowing HTML in posts.

Using the Advanced text editor (the A/A button in the top right corner of the edit box) makes it easier to format posts in a Word-style layout without allowing HTML.

The only reason security issues would arise if <script> and <(i)frame> tags weren't stripped, but even friendly tags could be used just to screw up formatting and such. There's no issue controlling what html can be used, but I doubt cutlass wants to code it and do some preg_replace() with regex.

Right, there may not be much of a security concern per se, but someone can post something in HTML and make it a real pain to properly view the thread they posted in.
