On our forum the [hide][/hide] tags don't seem to work. All they do is put the text in a coloured box but leave it visible.

Have you enabled bbcode on profile as well as admin panel?

If you have replied in the topic then it will become visible for you.
The content inside hide tags in only hidden to those who have not replies in the topic.

Ok, so that's not the behaviour I was expecting. On other forums I have used (not forumotion) the hide tags allow you to, well, hide something which is revealed by clicking on the 'click to reveal' link which appears in its place.

Is it possible to achieve this behaviour?

Ok, thanks. But I'm sure our lot will be pleased just knowing there is a working hide tag. I predict lots of happy faces. :wouhou:

Heres a little trick for you Smile

a while ago for fun on my forum myself and the staff would leave hidden messages for the members by simply adding the message to different area's of the forum and using the color code to make the font effectively invisible until you highlight it

Obviously you don't know where the text is because you cant see it Very Happy

Try highlighting underneath this text

This is just an example of some forum trickery

well the good thing about the code is you can add any colour you want, here is the code and a link to hex codes to enable the exact colour you need Smile

Do you have HTML enabled on your forum? If you do, then yes, you can add anything you want to a spoiler label (or a code label for that matter). You just have to create the spoiler box manually:

Code:
<dl class="codebox" style="cursor: pointer;" onclick="this.getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display=((this.getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display=='none')?'':'none');"><dt>spoiler label</dt><dd><div style="display:none;">spoiler text</div></dd></dl>
The above is for phpBB3. For Invision, the only change would be (class="spoiler") instead of (class="codebox").

Yes, that was the point of the original post. I learnt that
Spoiler:
tags are what I needed. What I'm looking for now is a way to change the behaviour of those spoiler tags so that users can add a label. The solution above seems to require pasting in the HTML code into each post. Is there a way of assigning this HTML functionality to the tag itself, or to a button?

To do this, HTML must be allowed in posts.
This is the spoiler code...

Code:
<dl class="codebox" style="cursor: pointer;" onclick="this.getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display=((this.getElementsByTagName('div')[0].style.display=='none')?'':'none');">
<dt>Ankillien Posts:</dt>
<dd>
<div>This is the content inside thw spoiler.</div>
</dd>
</dl>

Notice the Ankillien Posts: inside <dt>. That will change the label.
The content goes inside <div> tags.

ok, so the person has to insert the DHTML code into the post by hand. Understood.

Thanks. :-)
