I am running through all the recommended security steps and this is the next on my list.

Per the MyBB Security Guide located at
Under MyBB — General Configuration / Disable HTML Parsing it states...

Parsing HTML in all user content (like posts and profile fields) is highly dangerous and should be kept disabled.
The following Settings should be set to No:

Posting » Allow HTML in Announcements (announcementshtml)

Private Messaging » Allow HTML (pmsallowhtml)
Profile Options » Allow HTML in Signatures (sightml)

I am not clear where in the ADMIN I find these settings or what file I am supposed to be selecting NO.

Please advise.
