Can HTML <span> tag be used to format text in editor?

I am setting up a self hosted Discourse forum. Thumbs up for the well documented install process and Kudos to the community for active support in forums !

Recently I noticed that I was unable to color text using HTML span tag as follows.

<span style="color: #ff0000;">test</span>

Am I missing some plugin for this? I have used discourse-bbcode-color successfully. So coloring seems to work otherwise.

Screenshot is attached for reference. Thanks!


Welcome, Anargha! :blob_wave:

Alternatively, there’s an official BBCode plugin that supports colors plus other tags:
