Dear Friends,

I need the text boxes that the end users fills to be in rich text editors format, is this already available in Limesurvey, or should i hack the code.

All text questions use a simple input HTML element of type text or textarea. There are no editors connected to those elements.

If you are planning to develop such a feature please share your results with us. Have a look at docs.limesurvey.org/How+to+contribute+new+features for more details on contributing features.

What happens to the XSS filter in this case?
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

It needs to be turned OFF plus I think we should show a warning that this might cause security issues.

OK, so my concern was right and this would interact with the XSS filter. Thanks for confirming!
