Expanded HTML Support in EMails and Custom Sections

We have added a number of HTML tags, attributes and styles to custom sections and emails. We limit the use of HTML tags in the HTML Tag Editor for security and consistency of the look and feel of RunSignUp.

The largest change we have made is on emails, where we now allow images in emails. The images must be stored separately on another website and be https. For example, the HTML would be something like this:

To generate an image of the marines on the beach carrying the flag in the email like this:

Here is a list of the HTML elements we permit in both Custom Sections as well as Emails:

  • ‘h1′,’h2′,’h3′,’h4′,’h5′,’h6’,
  • ‘p’, ‘b’, ‘i’, ‘u’,’br’, ‘hr’,
  • ‘strong’,’em’,’span’,’a’,’ul’,’ol’,’li’,’div’,’pre’,
  • ‘sup’, ‘sub’,
  • ‘table’, ‘thead’, ‘tbody’, ‘tfoot’, ‘tr’, ‘th’, ‘td’

We allow a number of styles, such as:

  • Align: center, right, left
  • Decoration: none, underline, line-through
  • Transform: none, capitalize, uppercase, lowercase, initial
  • Font Weight: normal, bold
  • Font Style: normal, italic
  • Font-size, Line height, letter spacing, border spacing
