Acquia Cohesion renames to Site Studio from version 6.2. Tell me more.

Why is HTML being escaped when using Drupal tokens?

HTML is escaped when using Drupal tokens in Site studio as a security measure, this follows Drupal core.

If HTML is input into something like a node title field and then a token such as [node:title] is used within a Site studio component the HTML inside the field will be escaped and render as a string. This follows Drupal core.

If you require the HTML to not be escaped for specific tokens you can use the below hook_tokens_alter() in your custom code:

This example alters the menu link title value token to allow HTML.

 * Implements hook_tokens_alter().
function cohesion_tokens_alter(array &$replacements, array $context,\Drupal\Core\Render\BubbleableMetadata $bubbleable_metadata) {
  if(isset($replacements['[menu_link_content:title:value]'])) {
    $replacements['[menu_link_content:title:value]'] = \Drupal\Core\Render\Markup::create(Drupal\Component\Utility\Html::decodeEntities($replacements['[menu_link_content:title:value]']));
