Before our forum software got updated to 2.8.0.beta6, I used to nest the color tag in links - e.g.:
Now I need to use HTML… which does not work here either:
(Due to new user restrictions I had to remove the actual links from this post.)
It really looks nice in this table.
Maybe you want Discourse BBCode color? Or maybe there’s an issue with it?
This issue is the anchor, remove it and the colour works fine:
Otherwise the BBCode colour scheme is not parsed correctly.
If you wrap it the other way:
The CSS for anchor takes precedence, even though the BBColor is rendered as good html styling.
That is what we have been using. IIRC it has been list in the plugins list since we switched to Discourse.
But I want the link and the custom color.
It used to work before. Was that not intended?
You’ll need the maintainers to weigh in.
I looked at that post in raw and it’s not using vanilla BBCode:
This seems to work.
That’s because BBCode is not running on Meta?
Demo on one of my sites which is: RIP Sir Clive Sinclair - News - Rideables
Yes, I switched to HTML earlier today. In the past BBCode worked, too. While other users don’t mind, I wanted to avoid the use of HTML.
I dug into the plugin code briefly. Tbh nothing appears to have changed BBCode plugin side functionally for about 4 years? All the commits since appear to be just coding standards and repo CI stuff?
Thank you very much. Yes, it was one of the first things I noticed after the update to 2.8.0.beta6. So, I assume either the plugin needs an update or Discourse a bug fix.
Or I need to be content with using HTML, too. But I find it messy to use three markup languages.
