Description

The category description will not display HTML. For instance:

This is a category for blah blah blah.
<a href="http://feedurl.com">Subscribe to this category's feed</a>

The code is displayed - rather than linked text.
The hyperlink showed fine in 2.2; but not in 2.3.

  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Severity changed from normal to minor

I think its because of the way that it handles your description. Anyhow, feeds are supposed to be available to the user from the location bar. Try saying "Please check the feed on your location bar."

I'm not sure of this solution, so I will not close this.

Is the new behaviour intended? If someone changed the handling of category descriptions for some reason then keep it, but if it happened accidently it should be reverted before the release of 2.3.
