Layout does not work for Announcements

Hi all,

We cannot edit our announcements after upgrading to OJS 3. They look as a block of text.
I saw that with the release of OJS 3.1.1. this problem should have been solved.

https://github.com/pkp/ojs/blob/master/docs/release-notes/README-3.1.1. : “#3273: When logged in, edit link on the announcement page is not working properly”.

But after upgrading to the latest version we still cannot edit the announcements. They still appear as a block of text.
Could you tell me how to solve this.

Hi @AI_JE,

Can you describe what you mean by “block of text”? A screenshot might help.

Hi Alec,

By “block of text” I mean a text without any layout: no bold, no italics, no paragraphs, etc.

We cannot edit the text to give it the appearance we would like to have it at our website.

Hi @AI_JE,

Check that the allowed_html setting in your config.inc.php specifies the kind of markup elements and attributes that you want to use for layout. (Beware, though, that these are granted to other users in the system – e.g. authors – so you wouldn’t want to add e.g. script or other elements that could be abused.)

Hi Alec,

I could not make the changes you proposed myself as a journal manager. But today our administrator did, and it works fine now.
Thank you so much.
