Re: color attribute
I think you might have better luck at the TinyMCE forum. It’s not a bbPress problem, (unless it’s a filter stripping out the tags) but something TinyMCE is doing with your span tags.
I suspect though that it’s got to do with the rules for span elements. The XHTML ruleset allows
style but I’m not sure why it strips out the color. Or, are you filtering this through something in bbPress that would strip that out? (in WordPress, I think kses handles that.) Can you post spans with a color style as administrator? How about the ‘admin can post anything’ plugin?
If the admin can post the
<span style="color: #ff0000;">, WYSIWYG or not, then it’s likely a filter in bbPress that is stripping that code out.
