    how do you hide text?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Mckk, Mar 13, 2013.

    I know of the "spoiler: show/hide" function but I have no idea how to create it in my posts? I see no button to press in the tool bars and I don't know the HTML code for it. Does anyone know?

    Yes! It isn't hard...

    you just type, [noparse]
    whatever you want to hide
    [/noparse]

    I have that wrapped in [Noparse][noparse][/noparse][/noparse] tags to keep it from actually making the spoiler box.

    Without the no parse tags, it looks like
    Tadaa! :p

    Hope that helps!

    Just
    hide it between spoiler tags.
    That is, preface the text to be hidden with *spoiler* and end it with */spoiler*. (Change the asterisks to square brackets.)

    Like this?

    [noparse]
    and just experimenting as to what noparse's meant to be :p
    [/noparse]

    So what's the point of noparse again, if it cancels out the spoiler code?

    Btw thanks Phoenix and Minstrel :)

    No problem! And yeah, noparse cancels out any html code that goes within it. So, like, if you put noparse around an Italics or bold tag, it wouldn't work. I think the point is so that you can write out the code for demonstration without it actually activating.

    The point of [NOPARSE][NOPARSE][/NOPARSE][/NOPARSE] is twofold:
    It's great for showing members how to accomplish tasks like the one you asked about.
    It's also good for preventing URLs and email addresses from being automatically converted to links.

    In the depths of my own mind.
    Technically, tags and the like aren't HTML. They are called BBCode or Bv, and are used on message boards to replace HTML formatting.

    Can someone please tell me how I can create a thread so I can post my stories in the short story section. I never ran into this kind of problem in a forum before.
