New Topic Tool should permit blockquote tags (nowiki added)
Open, Needs TriagePublic


This kind of edit should not be necessary. The <blockquote> tags shouldn't be wrapped in <nowiki> tags.

Open question

  • 1. What – if any – consequences could result from adding a "Blockquote" item to the "Style text" dropdown within the New Topic Tool? E.g. How – if at all – would this functionality impact switching between source and visual modes?

Event Timeline

The original edit was made in visual mode. If you see <blockquote> in the visual mode, you should see <blockquote> after saving as well. (Note that the URL above the quotation was also escaped.) In source mode, I was able to reply you with an unescaped <blockquote> two years ago; if there hasn’t been a regression since then, it should work today as well. (Although I used the plain <textarea>-based editor, not the 2017WE-based one, so in theory there could be a regression, but it’s quite unlikely.)

Actually, a warning could could appear when you type HTML tags, similarly to how it appears for wikitext markup, but adding <nowiki> is certainly a feature, not a bug.
