For some reason, on my "Forum" posts, the HolderAbstract shows the html code, instead of what the html code does. Example, "<p>" becomes "&lt;p&gt;".

It should show up like (it shows up correctly on pages where there aren't posts):

If this is your first visit, you will need to register before you can post. However, you can browse all messages below.

It is showing up as:

<p>If this is your first visit, you will need to <a href="ForumMemberProfile/register" title="Click here to register">register</a> before you can post. However, you can browse all messages below.</p>

Forum <-- shows up correct
---Forum 1 <-- shows up correct
------Topic 1 <-- shows up wrong
------Topic 2 <-- shows up wrong

I have tried changing how they are stored in the database from Text, to varchar, and htmltext.

I have also tried changing ForumHeader.ss on line 29.

<% if Abstract %>$Abstract<% else %>$Content<% end_if %>

I tried: $Abstract.RAW, $Content.RAW, $Abstract.HTML, $Content.HTML

Any ideas?

Could you tell me (or point me in the right direction) the changes you made to fix it? I am using a heavily modified version of the forum, and I would hate to have to redo the modifications.

In the mean time, I will download the daily build, and see if I can figure it out.

**update**

forum.php
line 1504
change function to:

	function getAbstract() {
		$abstract = DataObject::get_one("ForumHolder")->HolderAbstract;
		$output = new HTMLText('Abstract');
		$output->setValue($abstract);
		return $output;
	}

Works awesome :) Thank you.
