< and > characters in subject and posts

Hi Everyone!

I’ve received reports from community members about a forum behavior where anything enclosed between ‘<’ and ‘>’ is interpreted as HTML code. This means that if you type ‘< prefix >::1’, only ‘::1’ is visible when reading the post, but the entire text is visible during the editing phase.

Is it possible to modify this behavior or provide an option for users to disable it in their profile settings? I couldn’t find any related setting in the user profiles.


Hi @Joe_Nguyen I don’t believe there is any way to disable it

But you can use the preformatted </> text button in the composer, as well as the code language after the first set of ticks.


@Lilly Thank you!


No problem. I forgot to include the button screenshot in my first post and just added it. I hope this helps. :slight_smile:
