A member of one of my groups included HTML anchor links in a forum post. Well, I'm not sure whether she actually typed in the HTML into her post, but that's what I think she did. The resulting notification message showed links like this:

blah blah blah <a href="URL">blah</a> blah blah blah

After receiving this notification by email, the member requested that such HTML tags be embedded in the notification messages, so I'm opening the ticket here for discussion. I suppose that there are conceivable security risks, but I don't see them as being that large due to the nature of our community.

Turns out that the HTML was pasted into the forum posting text area, but it was pasted from MS Word, and the quotation marks were curved; perhaps that was part of the problem?

Note of explanation. We send plaintext emails at the moment, so it's not possible to have real links. My solution is to take links that look like:

<a href="">Google</a>

and turn them into
Google []
