RSS Widget displays HTML

The RSS widget displays the HTML in a feed instead of passing it through filters and using the HTML. This means that links and other code don't work.

Change needed in wp-includes/widgets.php

Fixed when I change line 1139 from

$desc = str_replace(array("\n", "\r"), ' ', attribute_escape(strip_tags(html_entity_decode($summary, ENT_QUOTES))));


$summary = str_replace(array("\n", "\r"), ' ', attribute_escape(strip_tags(html_entity_decode($summary, ENT_QUOTES))));

$desc and $summary where being set to the same thing, so I consolidate the logic.

Works much better with this patch.

Are tags stripped because they could cause layout problems?
