HTML tags in statuses through api/v1


#1

Hi there,
I’m trying to write statuses through web call (/api/v1/statuses?) and deliver some formatted html (including <a> or <p> e.g.) by post in parameter status.
Works fine beside the fact. that the html tags are treated plain text which makes it a bit less readable for the audience.
Anyone an idea what’s the fault?
Thank you!

The mastodon API does not support creating statuses with arbitrary HTML. Mastodon processes the status provided by the user server-side to apply the relevant formatting (@mentions and link shortening)
