[Mapbender-users] 'Feature Info' works for certain WMS only in the "WMS loader", but not when added from 'source'

Hello Henning,

looks like it has to do with the featureInfo format.

You would like to get a featureInfo answer in text/html.

Please go to your application-Layerset->GeoServer WMS and check the WMS 
infoformat. It should be set to text/html. Please save afterwards.

GeoServer offers many infoformats in the getCapabilities Document. 
Mapbender chooses the first which is not always text/html.
