HTML Tag Requests- pre and strikeout? on 05/26/2011 09:40:31 MDT Print View

Any chance we could have the pre and s (strikeout) tags added the the HTML allowed list?

Just made a big post with a few tables in a thread... Impossible to make the data readable without <pre> </pre>. :)

Another handy one would be <s>strike out</s>. It'd especially be useful for the Gear Swap forum. For instance:

FS: MLD SoloMid

MLD SoloMid
<s>$180</s> SOLD!

Thanks!

Aaron

I'll see how much work that is for our developer. Tables can be posted cleanly just so long as you leave no return breaks between your code. But if you have a huge table it's quite time-consuming and annoying to go through and do that.

How can the tables be posted? Tabs don't seem to work.

"How can the tables be posted? Tabs don't seem to work."

Just link to a google docs spreadsheet.

A Google Docs Spreadsheet is way past overkill for a table of 5-10 rows and 2-3 columns.

Maybe he means HTML tables work?

This Link shows how to embed an image of a spreadsheet.

The first time will be a learning process, but it is pretty easy and fast.

I was referring to html tables.

@Greg
Thanks, but that's still tedious for what I had in mind.

@Sam
I didn't know HTML tables worked, but sure enough it worked fine in my previous post. That's good enough for now, though the simplest thing for me would be the pre tag. If it throws a monkey wrench into the way the code is written to parse tags as I'd assume if tables can't have newlines within them, then I can just write a vim script/macro to convert a tabbed table into a no-new-line HTML table. Thanks!

I chatted with our developer and unfortunately the use of HTML in the BPL forums is limited to that HTML that is already available. To allow the use of more HTML would mean allowing the use of all HTML. Unfortunately that is not an option as it would allow users to embed any code they wanted into a forum post which has a tendency to really muck up a website.

Shouldn't be any technical reason that's the case, but I'll leave it at that. I appreciate you taking the time to look into it- thanks!

Aaron, its inherently part of our forum software.

Tables on the wiki are a old school, but I can live with it.
Look at it as UL HTML.
