Adding HTML to select list options


I'm trying to add HTML to the select list options, according to the documentation I should be able to add a bold option : <b>My Option</b>

However when I add it, the option appears normal in the create issue field select list, not in bold.

Has anyone tried this and seen this work ? Is there anything I’m doing wrong ?

I’m using version 5.0.7

Hi Alon,

In order to use the HTML tag, you need to enable the "HTML" under {{Administrator >> Plugins >> Plugins >> Manage Plugins >> System Plugins >> Wiki Renderer Macros Plugin >> HTML}}

I hope the information provided helped.


Oh yeah, make sure you use the Wiki renderer.
