    • Andrew Cross says:

      Via your admin panel go to member levels and edit the one you require.

      If you want to allow specific tags, you can enter them below (separated by commas). Example: b, img, a, embed, font

      if this does not work for you maybe you should try using a 3rd party plugin for comments
