[resolved] Jetpack comments HTML escaping (3 posts)

    Am I correct in saying that Jetpack comments doesn't take any measures to strip/escape HTML in comment submissions?

    Jetpack Comments uses the same comment rules than the "standard" WordPress comments. Commenters will be able to use some basic HTML tags such as links or formatting tags. Other HTML tags will be stripped.

    But as an administrator on your site, you should be able to use more tags when leaving comments. If you experience issues with HTML in comments, could you try to log out of your administrator, and try to leave a test comment as a reader?

    Thanks, you're quite right I was mistakenly testing it whilst logged in.
