    How to add spoiler in your post?

    Today, I added another functionality to the forum. That is spoiler. What is this spoiler?

    Spoiler is a functionality to show or hide text and/or picture. Everything inside the spoiler tags can be shown or hidden by the user mouse click (or tab for phone user).

    Following is what the spoiler looks like. Please click the [Show] link and it will show the content inside the spoilers. After you click the [Show] link, the link will change to [Hide]. If you click this [Hide] link, all content inside this spoiler will be hidden.

    Spoiler
    PETALING JAYA: Hordes of shoppers thronged supermarkets and sundry shops across the Klang Valley today after the government announced restrictions on movements in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor and Putrajaya under a conditional movement control order (CMCO) beginning on Wednesday.



    One shopper named Dave, who lives in Bandar Kinrara 3, said he was at his local supermarket buying dog food at around 5pm when he saw a huge number of people “swarming in” and throwing groceries into their trolleys.

    “It was total chaos and simply unnecessary. Some husbands and wives had a trolley each,” he said, pointing out that “It’s not the end of the world”.

    Dave said he could not understand such behaviour as Malaysians had already gone through previous stages of lockdowns, during which shops remained open selling groceries and essential items.

    This spoiler function is useful for including long explanation text or background information. This long text can be on or off so that reader can concentrate on the other part of your post. For example your questions, calculation, conclusion, etc.

    How you actually use this spoiler? Just highlight the text you want to put under spoiler and then click the spoiler button. See following screenshot.



    All the highlighted text is the one that created the spoiler above. Now you can click the [Show] or [Hide] link.

    Just my opinion, why not call it Details vs Condense?
    If everything in life is measurable, then understanding destiny would be as simple as counting 1, 2, and 3.

    Well, it's the developer decision to go with the flow. Using the standard acceptable name that is spoiler.

    To know it's history and origin, one has to Google the detail. My guess is it's related to movie. "Spoiler alert", please don't click here if you have not watched the movie, because all comments hidden there would reveal the plots of the movie. ;D
