Post Hide Spoiler

I've seen a lot of forums that have a 'hide spoiler' function that conceals anything placed within it by the poster until clicked upon. This is usually used to conceal lengthy walls of text, but has several other applications of course.

I mention it mainly because of this wonderful thread:

Getting through all those pictures to a new post is a rather tedious experience.

I'm inclined to agree, personally. Even if it's named something else, it'll definitely improve some threads.
Click here for occult text would be quite funny.

There are hacks floating about the place.

Here's my answer...


[showmore]Ta da![/showmore]

I've also added the ShowMoreMsg tag... which allows you to add your own message to the link like:


[showmoremsg msg=I like cake, click here to have some][img]http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:mN8dEHMpW_asEM:http://www.juvela.co.uk/recipes/images/victoria_cake.jpg&t=1[/img][/showmoremsg]

No hacks required ;)

That's the perfect solution.

Now, who do I have to pay around here to get a correction to a lime-flavored typo? Do I make a lump-sum payment, or a monthly deposit?

Post Re: Hide Spoiler

Thanks for not locking this just yet.

I love the new ShowMore and ShowMoreMsg, except for one small thing. Is it possible to hide the spoiler once it is seen?

Why does my life have to be so small
And death is forever
And does forever have a life to call its own?
Don't give me an answer cause you only know
As much as I know
Unless you've been there once
And I hardly think so

You can use the URL tag as a quickfix:
until or unless Spork can fix this.

Post Re: Hide Spoiler

Excuse me for pulling this up. And for the many "codes".

I would be delighted to see a ShowMoreMsg button^ in the buttons bar of the edit page. I wanted to use this feature and forgot how to do it. I tried doing these:
[ShowMore="Title"]Content[/ShowMore]
[ShowMore=Title]Content[/ShowMore]
[ShowMore='Title']Content[/ShowMore]

and realized all of them didn't work.* I had to search for this topic just to remind myself that it is:
[ShowMoreMsg msg=Title]Content[/ShowMoreMsg]

and even for this I had trouble at first because I didn't change the end tag from /ShowMore to /ShowMoreMsg.

^The button must put the following in the edit box:
[ShowMoreMsg msg=_CURSOR-HERE_][/ShowMoreMsg]

*On a side note, it would have made more sense if the ShowMore tag was like this. The URL tag actually works in a similar way:
[url]http://www.somewebsite.com[/url]
[url=http://www.somewebsite.com]Some Website[/url]
