    Default IDEA: More useful spoilers

    I'm sure this will be addressed in the vB4 upgrade, but while we haven't done that, it would still be a good idea even when we're still in vB3.

    What I'm proposing is two changes in the spoiler tag:

    • Allow the spoiler to have a custom title. The BBCode for this is [spoiler="Insert spoiler title text here"][/spoiler] (Instead of just a "spoiler: click to show" caption.)
    • Allow spoilers to be shown/hidden instead of just shown.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    I really like this idea. It may seem like an insignificant change but there are times that a custom title can come in handy. Also, being able to hide pictures may help with threads meant for pictures to reduce a clutter of huge pictures on the page.

    Dang, that might be hard to implement.

    Nonetheless... UP.

    UP I would like being able to toggle spoilers--I get annoyed when there are multiple spoilers and I open all of them but can't close them again! In other words, I get annoyed with my own art thread... a lot )=

    Up for the first suggestion. It actually used to be this way (or still is, I have no clue) on SPPf, but it's never been that way here.

    As for the second suggestion, we're one step ahead of you on that one. That feature will be enabled as soon as we upgrade.

    The current spoiler addon we have was custom-coded by Archaic. We may get a not-custom one for vB4, but right now it'd be tough to make any meaningful changes to it.

    For now I'm going to close this, but feel free to bring it up once we make the vB4 shift and change the spoiler addon we use.

    The spoiler issue will be fixed on the upgrade, so I think we're just waiting for that to have fully functional ones.

    Also, I don't think the custom thing is possible.
