Yes. You chopped the context off, but we were talking about the
meta-code used in programing the Listinfo web page.
HTML tags are no longer allowed in the List Description field of the web
admin interface. But that is a story for another day.
Hmmm... that really is a bug. The description field should either tell
you that only text can be entered here, or the Mailman utility
~mailman/Mailman/HTMLFormatter.py needs to be re-written to leave the
mm-list-info HTML tags alone.
The fix/workaround for now is to edit the listinfo page:
Mailman Web-admin for the list
Browse to: Edit the public HTML pages
Browse to: General list information page
- now find the meta-tag: <MM-List-Info>
- delete this meta-tag and replace it directly with
your HTML text for list description
- click on "Submit Changes"
That will put the HTML-ized list description directly into the web-based
Listinfo page for your list.
Since you have removed the meta-tag <MM-List-Info> the web-based
Listinfo information will now be independent of whatever text you put
into the detailed list description on the General page of the web-admin.
Hope that is more helpful!
