In another forum i go to, the spoiler tag button actually makes the writing match the background exactly so you drag your mouse over it to see...

I won't add the tag to this forum, but definitely to the new version of the forum (which I plan on doing next month for sure). XD

Next next month (September) I won't have any time at all to do it, so it has to be during August. :P

Well, it's not exactly like I wanted it, but maybe I'll work on it more later on.  Anyway we now have a spoiler tag! XD

There we go!  It now works with more than one spoiler on the same page! :)

It's still kinda odd that you reveal all spoilers at the same time, but it's way more complicated to fix that, so I might just leave it. 

It's kinda hard to be reading more than one post at a time anyway. ;P

I tried it with slightly dated versions of Opera, Firefox, Mozilla, and IE. IE is the only one that worked correctly.

I'll update my browsers and see if that fixes it. :-\

The same problem I was having with IE not being able to detect multiple spoilers per page is happening with those other browsers.  I'll see if I can fix that.

I'm using IE (v.6, SP1) and still can't read the spoiler tag :(
The status bar show 'Error on page' (not a very rare thing), and no amont of mouse clicking/hovering would cause the text to reveal...
The only way to see it is to quote the message :P

I used to be able to read it. Maybe in an attempt to fix it, Neil broke it. :P

LOL, yes.  I can get it working with IE, but I'd rather get it to work with everything.  I should actually mention that it works with any browser (well, any browser newer than 1997 XD) when there is only one spoiler on a page, but rather than getting something that half-works, I'm trying to fix properly.

By that I mean I can get all spoilers to reveal at once with IE, but that's kinda silly, so I'd rather leave it busted until I can get them to reveal individually with all browsers. :)

Thanks! :)

Sorry I haven't been able to get it to work properly yet when there's more than one on a page.  This'll be on my To Do list once I get the 'net again. :P

The Spoiler tag now works! XD  I still might improve on the look a bit more, but at least it's working. :)

Now, instead of being mean to newbies, and just giving them :suffer: s for answers, we can do this. ;P
