Spoilers BBCode

Postby FSF Hawg » Tue Nov 02, 2010 10:33 pm

You will now find a new BBCode tag available for hiding Spoilers. Wrap your text in a spoiler tag (button available with the full editor). This will hide it until the user specifically clicks on the "Show" link, preventing them from seeing it!

Example:
Spoiler: show
Hidden spoiler text here


The Code:
Code: Select all
[spoiler]Hidden spoiler text here[/spoiler]


Please try this out and if you find any issues, report them back to me. If no one finds any issues, then the Forum Rules will be modified to make this the only way to post spoilers to a forum.

Thanks!!

It's nice, though it works better on some board styles than others. With Charcoal, when I click, it gives me pale gray on white.

One tip of usage. Okay, maybe not here, but in some forums, bios are posted in the forums. Some people use spoiler tags to extend their bios. For instance, they put down the basics for history, then use spoiler tags to click if people want the details.

Bourne suggested it, I just found and added it. :)

That is a type of feature that had just not crossed my mind. Now that it has, I have looked around for similar stuff, but not seen anything that was like, "we have to have that!!".

But if anyone knows of other features like that that we could really use, please feel free to email them to me and I will implement them if I think they are appropriate (and possible).

I will put that on my To Do list, and see if I can tweak the CSS for that style.

That would be up to each sim's hosts.

Actually Meushell, you should file a "Bug Report" from the main AMS site, and then it can be assigned to me and be completed. That way you can also get MyPoints! for the suggestion. :)
