Re: superscript in a forum message

A superscript can be added via the HTML editor tab when composing your message.

 

An example of the necessary HTML tag is test<sup>3</sup>

 

This is how it would look when properly added to the HTML directly: test3

I can't get this to work. Even when I try to reply and quote your text, I get the error message (view attached) and it strips away the superscript. 

 

Oh, yeah, can't attach attachments to this part of the forum either!

Re: superscript in a forum message

After looking into this, it appears that the sup tag is not included in the default list of allowed HTML tags for users.  For security purposes, there is a small subset of HTML tags that are allowed to be embedded into posts. For some reason, this was left off.  As you noticed, the tag was subsequently stripped out of your posts.

 

We are working to add the sup tag onto that list, so it should be usable soon.

Thanks.  I guess you have privileges that we don't in this regard, since you could do it but we group members can't.  Thanks for looking further into it for us.

Yes exactly, Leanne.  While obviously somone like you isn't a concern (as well as many other regular users), we need to be safe and ensure that most accounts can't just embed any code they please.

 

With that said, this has officially been fixed.  You can now add super (and sub) scripts to your posts. 

 

Feel free to let us know if any other issues arise.
