Can I use spoiler boxes here?

I have looked through the FAQs and cannot find how to put things in spoiler boxes. Is this not allowed on the ADDforum? I can on other Vbulletin sites.

Re: Can I use spoiler boxes here?

Hi, and welcome to ADDF Unfortunately, the forums don't support Spoiler Boxes at present.

Re: Can I use spoiler boxes here?

On some forums, you can put things in "spoiler boxes" so the contents of that box will not be visible until you click on the box. For instance, if I was talking about a movie and didn't want to reveal the ending, I could [spoiler box] put in the twist ending [/spoiler box] and people who hadn't seen the movie wouldn't have to read that part, unless they clicked on the box.

It is also good for punch lines for jokes, etc. Several v-Bulletin forums I know of use these boxes.

Re: Can I use spoiler boxes here?

thank you, I had NO idea what they were either.

(I was picturing a little box full of orange peels and coffee grounds, like a thing for compost for gardens!)

Thanks. On another forum, I used to frequent (also run by vBulletin), they had trigger boxes for sensitive contents. The text inside trigger boxes would only show when you clicked on it.

Exactly, Same idea. Only on that forum it is used for either plotlines, tmi gross stuff, or to get around the "two click" rule* for Not Safe for Work (NSFW) posts.


*Any link to anything NSFW, explicit, etc had to be two clicks away, so you couldn't accidentally click on something inappropriate.

Re: Can I use spoiler boxes here?

Thank you. Now I have this over-whelming urge to use a trigger box with spoiler box at the end of every post. Please fix this
