Formatting a message custom field in bold and red


I'm using Toolkit plugin and I created a Message custom field (for edit). I would need that the message displays in red and bold to make it more visible but I did not find the right code. I tried this one but it did not work:

{panel} (i){color:red} My message{color} {panel}

any ideas please ?

thanks in advance

Try using html tags smile

<b><font color="red">My message</b></font>

Many thanks for your help Gabrielle, it perfectly works now!

Hi @Gabrielle Bautista [ACP-JA] - Do you have any idea what the syntax would be to include a hyperlink?  

html hyperlinks would be <a href=""></a>. 

Awesome ..  Thank you!  I did search html tags in parallel and found this too. 


Appreciate your help!



Hi - I'm trying to also do a custom field but it's not taking the html. I put in: <p><b><i>Please Test</p></b></i> and the results show the tags. When I go back to edit, it changes to: <p>&lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;i&gt;Please Test&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/i&gt;</p> and renders with tags...

For me panels worked best and it looks better. 

Please Test

But it is a matter of preference.  

Thanks, can't remember what I was doing back then lol but just tried it and not exactly what I was looking for... More of being able to select certain words within a paragraph (I think that's what I was doing) and highlighting certain words, phrases, having more control of the formatting.

Thanks for the option, however.
