Allowed BBCode in social groups


How come the LQ Social Groups are so crippled when it comes to formatting? Every time I try to include shell commands in discussions, I always get errors.

First of all, what fonts do Social Groups accept? Apparently none, because the BBCode 'font' is not allowed.

Secondly, apparently there's no links allowed, because 'url' isn't allowed as BBCode.

Third, apparently there's no shell commands allowed because the BB Code 'code' isn't allowed.

And all this coming from a group maintainer!

I've updated Social Groups to allow some additional bbcodes.

And when you did, you didn't include [url] in the mix! So if I try to include a link, say to an external site, without quoting the whole thing and going over the 5000 character limit, I can't!
