In phpBB 3 all html has been disabled and not allowed.

You must now use bbcode to do what you want.

They believed it was a security risk and so decided not to give the user who is using the board the choice of whether they want to use it or not.

The only way to get html to be allowed would be to create a mod.

HTML was a security risk as it it invited Board Admin the ability to allow dangerous HTML tags with no filtering in place and as such HTML has been replaced with custom BBcodes :)
