Forbidden HTML tags

WHAT THE HELL DOES THIS MEAN?! I need an answer soon, because I’m being blocked from making a completed entry and I cannot wait, or I loose ALL my work.

If the entry doesn’t allow you to submit due of “forbidden HTML tags” or “Need a description” heres how I get around it:

1) Copy the description into Notepad, or e-mail, or less preferably Microsoft Word (because MS word converts quotes into smart quotes, which are annoying with Textile)
2) Then edit the entry by uploading small chunks (like a paragraph or maybe two) of your description.

This usually works for me.

Yup, that’s also what I do.

I’m guessing it’s because you have script tags in the entry body.

Script tags aren’t allowed when creating an entry, but you can add them in after you’ve created it.

you probably have script or style tags which are forbidden since you could load a virus or something
