There have been several posts about HTML Purifier 2.0 lately. I did not look to closely at it until I saw this post on our Phorum support forum. Seems the creator of HTML Purifier has chosen Phorum for his site. I hope that means it met his standards for HTML and security. He has posted some questions about the Phorum core. We always welcome a fresh mind.
He is writing a module for Phorum to allow straight HTML in Phorum posts. We have an HTML module already, but its quite basic compared to what you can do with his library. Several people have wanted to use the WYSIWYG text editors that are out there. This should/could open that up to people. I don’t see the Phorum core ever having one, but that is what modules are for.
