Why does a colored shape appear to the right of a comment text that happens be its html color code?


  1. Open Google Chrome version 92.0.4515.159 on Windows 10
  2. Log in to Trello using username danesalmon11
  3. Go to board at
  4. Open a card
  5. Write and save a comment consisting of an HTML color code, e.g. #124589


The comment should exhibit no special markup behavior.


The comment renders a glyph to the right of the HTML color code text, bearing the signature color.

It's expected formatting behaviour. When you add a hex colour code in the description or comments of a card, it will generate the corresponding colour chip. If you don't want to see a hex color chip, you can escape the markdown syntax using a backslash before the pound symbol: e.g. \#00bfb3.

Oh, I see.

Ok np.
