Multi-Line Text Area loses formatting

  • neilgee


    The profile field Multi-Line Text Area gives the user a rich text editor when editing a profile field defined as this type.

    However, if the profile field is re-edited formats are lost such as bullet and numbered lists.

    Is there a workaround for this?

    I can confirm this bug. And it is not specific to a Template Pack.
    Some formatting is lost : afaik, the 3 alignment options and the numbered and bullet lists.

    I believe this is due to the allowed tags array used by BP.
    Those tags are not allowed and therefore are stripped when edits are saved.

    The allowed tags need to be altered to allow those tags.
    Or filtered to allow those tags when profile edits are saved and a Multi-Line Text Area field is present.

    Ok thanks, I have opened a ticket.

    To get around it for now I am using the Buddypress xProfile Rich Text Field plugin which allows an RTF field which does maintain all formatting if re-edited.



    Is there any update on this issue? (Is there somewhere else I should check for updates?) Thanks.
