Description boxes do not display text formatting



Event descriptions do not show links or emphasis on text, and even line breaks disappear - wedging two lines of text together. When the description is long enough, and on profile pages, you get a ‘Read more’ link below it, which shows the text correctly in a pop-up. However, here for example there is no such option.
I suspect that something is breaking html tags on that box.


Thanks for the report Andy - I think it may well be that simply we’re not honouring the formatting when outputting there. I don’t think there’s any reason not to do so, as to avoid XSS vulnerabilities we’re stripping malicious content out at the point of input, so don’t need to at the point of display (and as you mention we display it on the expanded view).

Should hopefully be a quick one to resolve, logged here:
