    Hey everyone,

    When creating a description on Flippa I see the option to use the likes of different colours, bullet points etc, and even a HTML editor, however when I actually attempt to implement it, it all fucks up.

    Example - I attempted to use bullet-points <ul><li></li></ul> and it some how resulted in the paragraph below the bullet points being drawn up to the last bullet point, no line break basically, attempted to <br /> and <p></p> around it and still wouldn't work.

    I also tried using a <h2></h2> to make something stand out and it didn't work either.

    This means that all I can do to manipulate my text is use <strong> and similar tags which is pretty poor. I've seen others implementing their own HTML as well, so maybe it's my trust rank which is +5? Seems stupid, but it's the only idea I could possibly come up with.

    Any response will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Yousef.
    We use a fairly standard HTML editor on Flippa and everything seems to be working fine on our end. Maybe try it again. If is still is not working, please drop us a line at Flippa > Contact (I'd add a URL but BHW won't let me yet ;-(!) and we'll get one of our support team to help out - be sure let us know your auction info, browser etc ...
    I'm sure we can help you out.

    Another neat thing you can do is prep your auction copy in Word and copy-paste the whole thing into Flippa's editor. Voila!
