Any chance we could have the pre and s (strikeout) tags added the the HTML allowed list?
Just made a big post with a few tables in a thread… Impossible to make the data readable without <pre> </pre>. :)
Another handy one would be <s>strike out</s>. It'd especially be useful for the Gear Swap forum. For instance:

I'll see how much work that is for our developer. Tables can be posted cleanly just so long as you leave no return breaks between your code. But if you have a huge table it's quite time-consuming and annoying to go through and do that.May 27, 2011 at 7:14 am #1741759
How can the tables be posted? Tabs don't seem to work.May 27, 2011 at 7:16 am #1741761

Just link to a google docs spreadsheet.May 27, 2011 at 7:47 am #1741772
A Google Docs Spreadsheet is way past overkill for a table of 5-10 rows and 2-3 columns.
Maybe he means HTML tables work?

I was referring to html tables.May 27, 2011 at 11:22 am #1741844
Thanks, but that's still tedious for what I had in mind.
I didn't know HTML tables worked, but sure enough it worked fine in my previous post. That's good enough for now, though the simplest thing for me would be the pre tag. If it throws a monkey wrench into the way the code is written to parse tags as I'd assume if tables can't have newlines within them, then I can just write a vim script/macro to convert a tabbed table into a no-new-line HTML table.

I chatted with our developer and unfortunately the use of HTML in the BPL forums is limited to that HTML that is already available. To allow the use of more HTML would mean allowing the use of all HTML. Unfortunately that is not an option as it would allow users to embed any code they wanted into a forum post which has a tendency to really muck up a website.May 31, 2011 at 10:02 am #1743120
Shouldn't be any technical reason that's the case, but I'll leave it at that. I appreciate you taking the time to look into it- thanks!May 31, 2011 at 11:36 am #1743181
Aaron, its inherently part of our forum software.May 31, 2011 at 6:38 pm #1743378
Tables on the wiki are a old school, but I can live with it.
Look at it as UL HTML.
