Coloured text does not work

Why whenever I try to use either bb code or any other methods, colouring text does not work.

Please can someone explain as to why this is happening

I think they may have left this out purposely, as the feature can be abused.

But it is bb code, are you saying that they have applied a black list for certain pieces of code?


So if even span style from HTML doesn’t work, then I am pretty sure they just left this out completely.

Discourse (our forum software) has a strict readable philosophy. Colored text is really hard to read and can be annoying.

For what purpose do you need colored text?

“I want to be obnoxious.”


Just to emphasis the text a little bit rather than just having black

Use images for that.

I guess it would be annoying if people decided to make rainbow text

Or, you know, use italics.
Which the forum software literally calls “emphasis” for some reason.
And also uses asterisks instead of [I] [/I}.
It’s real easy too. Just use CTRL+I for quick access.
