Not sure if this rates as support, hope not ;)

Attached an image of the Announcements forum here on the index, the description is bold. Is that template/code hacking by you guys or can it be done in the ACP? I've just tried with HTML and stuff but could get it to work :( Standard (finished) feature, on it's way or not without editing the files myself?

Ta :)

It is done in the ACP, just like it can be done in 2.0.6. In the descriptions, use <b>description</b>

I tried that and I get this -

Latest news and community announcements. <b>New members:</b> Please read this before posting!
Maybe a CVS issue :(

I'm pretty sure thats how you do it, but yea, you're right, probably just a CVS issue.

It is. :) I've done it pre-2.0.6 and in 2.0.6, so I know it is possible. :) Though you are certainly welcome to try it with BBCode.

BBCode requires extra processing which may not be wanted on the index page. IMO, the reason for BBCode is security over HTML. If you can't trust an admin not to...echo the database password then he shouldn't be an admin ;)
