Do not remove tags from .shortdesclink

Post by dgallo » Thu Mar 23, 2017 9:38 pm

In the search results page, tags wrapped around pieces of text appear to be stripped out in .shortdesclink.

For example if there is a <ph> tag wrapped around a string of text in my short description, it is being removed in .shortdesclink.

Can we please not strip tags, such as <ph> from .shortdesclink?

The text presented in WebHelp search results page is collected and stored as plain text without preserving any information about it's original structure.

Unfortunately, there is no workaround for this issue.

However, could you give us more details about your use case. Do you want to style different some text from the shortDescription section in WebHelp search result page?
