I'm not sure if maybe we already have this and I'm just to much of a fool to realize it. If not I think it'd be a good idea to implement them, personally I don't enjoy feeling like I've been assigned a creative writing project every time I need to insert a spoiler warning.

Are we talking the kind you click or the kind you highlight.
Woah flashback.

I think there should be an expandable tag that you click it and it automatically opens up and puts in the rest of the text. Like:

This is what the tag would look like:
SPOILER whatever the person wants to describe the spoiler as (public knowledge stuff)

And then click it and it changes to:
SPOILER
text text text
text text text
text text text
text text text
text text text
text text text
text text text
text text text
SPOILER

I like how 4chan does it, where the spoiler'd text is blacked out and only reveals it's SCANDALOUS SECRETS when you move your mouse over it.

I don't like that version. I'm talking about almost like a livejournal cut type of thing.

Ie, what I said (type you click).

The blacked out ones have compatibility issues for older internet explorers and several other browsers.

How about we have another contest in the art forum for a "SPOILER ALERT" image. Nothing too huge or whatever, but whichever one we go with, I'll set it up as a :spoiler emoticon that we can use wherever we want.

Sound good?

I think we need to have it so the spoiler isn't in text on the page until something is clicked, because some people do browse the site from sidekicks and other phones, and they don't have nearly the same compatibility. Maybe make it so instead of it saying spoiler, we can have an image, but I still think it really needs something clickable instead of just highlighting the text a different color.

Do you mean an emoticon that just says Spoiler Warning, without actually covering up any text? That's not very useful to be honest.

I know that some forums have a spoiler cut where you just click a button and it shows you the cut text if you choose to see it.

I REMEMBER SUGGESTING THIS A YEAR AGO TOO

No, it's like a tag in forum code. We have it at another forum I frequent. You just type
Spoilers!

And you have to click on it to view it. Not an image.

I think it would be handy to go the extra mile and have it create an image, that way it is easily recognizeable. It might have been an option on phpbb, but if it was, I never saw it used on here.

Okay, here we go...

Looking up vBulletin spoiler tags, I found something that just may work. Here's the basic thingy:

Spoilers!


Help me test it!

This version of it is short and sweet. I'm not going to modify it aesthetically until I'm sure it works how you people want.

The tags are [spoiler=id]Spoiler content[/spoiler]. That "id" may have to be unique on EACH page in the forum, not just in each post. Please play around with it, don't yell about how it looks, simply see if it functions like the majority of you would like it to work.

Yeah, it's going to need an id or clicking the button won't know what to show or hide.

haha and using the same id it only opens the first one on the page when you click a button

you may be able to get away with only changing the tag if you post two spoilers or more in a page
