[Discourse] Polls with HTML / Markdown

I popped a couple of polls up earlier today and wasn’t entirely certain if they could support the use of HTML or Markdown, I gave it a whirl and the preview of the post suggested that I could - awesome.

Once I had posted the topic, the HTML and Markdown was rendered as plain text.

I have raised this with the Discourse team and it looks like it is supposed to be supported and that a fix will be applied shortly. Details here.

@Ben, @sampattuzzi, @Michael_Bridges, @Lucy_Becker - it would give you the opportunity to layout poll options with both more detail (if required) or just more aesthetically pleasing, along with adding hyperlinks.

Great bug reporting, Rob!

No worries… Clinging to some form of purpose :slight_smile:

The fix is done and should be rolled out later today btw, so I will close this now.
