Any HTML formatting code in a mod’s description keeps getting deleted. Line breaks are missing and making it harder to read the description text.

The mods in question are Modders Map - Terrain Blending and Modders Map - All Objects

Mod description text is missing line breaks and other formatting.

Same, this already happened even before the mod page got updated.

I’ve also had this issue. The only workaround I found was to use HTML paragraph tags in the description. For example, for your description, you would write:

<p>This map shows...</p>

<p>This is meant to be a visual dictionary...</p>

<p>Note: This map takes longer to load...</p>

On a side note, it does not seem like the <ul> and <li> list tags work.

Update: I just checked your mods and they look like they have paragraph and line breaks in the description. Did you end up manually adding HTML tags, or did you do something else?

yea this has been an issue since game release.

Looks like they finally fixed this issue. I just updated my mod descriptions without needing to add HTML tags. In fact, we can now use formatting (bulleted lists, links etc.) when we edit descriptions.

It works at the internet mod page but the in-game mod description text is still unformatted.
