Is HTML gone?
In my last upload, I noticed that all the HTML markups that had been accepted up till may previous upload are no longer accepted. Have we lost HTML, too?

Since things started to get worse few years ago, I noticed that when I upload a photo there are two possible scenarios:

Option 1. After clicking upload I get error message. After going to my gallery I see that the photo is copied over but without the note and without accepting the location (town).
Usually in this case I click on edit and one more time I select the location and paste the note (which I always write in a text editor just in case).

Option 2. There is no error message and everything appears normal. The location and note are there BUT in that case all links and formatting from the note are deleted. So in that situation again I had to edit and paste the note again (if I had some links or formatting).

Since few years there was NEVER a situation that an upload would happen without any error.

Of course it is quite ridiculous that things are that are happening but administrators don't actually know this website so trying to explain anything was always difficult and now in addition they actually say they don't know how to fix things so there is not much point in this forum...

Kind regards,

To my knowledge, HTML has never been accepted, since it creates a larger security issue. Some people can use HTML code to create pop-ups and re-directs off of the site.

This is what is said in FAQ:
  1. What kind of HTML may be used in the Photographer Notes, Critiques or Intro sections?
    Bold, Italic, and Link tags are supported. Any other tags such as color, font size etc. are not supported and may be removed in the future.

I have made links to the larger version and to the WS photos for many years. As from yesterday that is no longer possible.

I confirm: I have tried to include a link in my comment and it was not accepted. It has worked before.

Unfortunately Trekearth has been in agony for a long time, and an IB does nothing to resolve it. That must be the goal.

Do you get an error message? Or what happens?
