How about being allowed to use HTML in a board title and Board description?

HTML in board descriptions has been a standard feature for a long time.

Quote:
The board description can now hold multiple lines and can use HTML!

Board titles are links so you'd be limited to the HTML you could use in them anyway.

I was trying to add an image but it does not work.
The image link works fine anywhere other than the board description.
So I thought it was just unable to use HTML.

Thanks, Derek
I will go look at the trouble shooting boards.

What's the code you are using?

I have tried

Code
Select All
[img]MyPath[/img] and <img>MyPath</img> 



These are the only two I know.

The first one is BBCode and the second one isn't valid use of the HTML img tag. This will do it for you:

Code
Select All
<img src="YourPath" alt="Your image description" />

Thanks again Derek,
Things would be much simpler if I knew what I was doing.
