Embedding HTML in Wiki Articles



It’s possible to enhance your Wiki articles with HTML. From the wiki editor, click the </> to open a rich text editor, and update your wiki to include HTML as needed.

For security reasons, FogBugz scrubs certain node types, HTML attributes, and CSS Properties from embedded HTML. Learn more about each of them through this article.


Node Types

Node types are divided into three categories:

  1. Whitelist: These nodes types are supported – go for it!
  2. Greylist: These nodes are scrubbed, but their children remain. (Anything that isn’t whitelisted or blacklisted is treated as a greylisted node type.)
  3. Blacklist: These nodes and any children are scrubbed from your wiki.
