HTML Tags

  • 1.  HTML Tags

    According to the Quick Base online help, certain html tags are supported.
    What tags can I use in Quick Base?

    However, when I try to use unordered list "<ul>" & list item "<li>" tags (which are supported according to the article) to create a bullet list in a text field area of a form, I get an error that says "The text to be displayed here contains an HTML tag that is not allowed."

    I tried it two different ways:
    <ul>
    <li>Bullet item Number 1</li>
    <li>Bullet item Number 2</li>
    <li>Bullet item Number 3</li>
    <li>Bullet item Number 4 </li>
    </ul>

    Second way:​<ul style="list-style-type:circle;">
    <li>Bullet item Number 1</li>
    <li>Bullet item Number 2</li>
    <li>Bullet item Number 3</li>
    <li>Bullet item Number 4 </li>
    </ul>

    Can someone explain to me why this isn't working as expected?  Thank you!

    If you look at the ? help icon for the text field on a FORM, you will see this help.  The supported HTML tags on a form text element, are more limited  

    Limited HTML

    If you check this checkbox, the text in the box above will
    be interpreted as HTML with the following tags allowed:
    b bold
    i italics
    p paragraph
    span text span
    br line break
    a for adding links as in:
      <a href="www.quickbase.com">Quick Base</a>
    img image
    table table
    tr table row
    td table cell
    th table heading cell

    Hi Byron,

    Depending on what you are trying to get to display on a form you can also use a formula Rich Text field to format text and then have it display on the form and hide the field label. I use that a lot when I want to include instructions on a form or other information that I want available every time someone is putting in or editing a record since Formula Rich Text fields support a larger array of HTML tags. So you should be able to put in your list tags and just wrap them in quotes and the Rich Text field will create that list for you. I hope that suggestion is helpful.
