Reply for Sharepoint Discussion board displays HTML source code RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was working with Discussion board in sharepoint, but I am noticing when the user clicks "reply" I get this:

    <b>From: </b>Bob<br/>
    <b>Posted: </b>Tuesday, June 03, 2014 3:48 PM<br/>
    <b>Subject: </b>Test <br/><br/>
    <div class=ExternalClass03###>test from bob

    I would prefer the user to not be able to see the HTML tags.  Also if the user starts typing after the `testing </div></div>`, and ends up with text like this:

              `hello there

               or rather

               hello world`

    the newlines aren't kept when they click "OK".

    what I would really like is for the user to basically get a text box that doesn't display source code, and that when they hit enter for newlines these are handled correctly and will display correctly when they click "OK".

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Let me know if there is any information you need.
