Checkboxes (Markdown) Not Displaying


(Seth S) #1

I'm using the Markdown Widget in Kibana 4.5.1 to make checkboxes, but they are displaying just the plain text.. is there something wrong I'm doing here? I'm simply using the Github example;

- [x] Finish my changes

  • [ ] Push my commits to GitHub
  • [ ] Open a pull request

Which displays bullets but nothing else;

While the same code works on any markdown editor, such as dillinger.io ;

Is there something I'm doing wrong? Is this just not supported by Elastic? Is there any documentation more than this paragraph? https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/markdown-widget.html

Thanks for any help.

Hi Seth,

Thanks for pointing this out.

This is an actual issue. I created https://github.com/elastic/kibana/issues/8024 to track it. If you have more feedback on this, please refer to that link.

FWIW, it's a upstream problem with the markdown parser that Kibana uses. If it gets fixed there, Kibana will benefit from that fix as well.
