Spoiler alert code on my question is not working, also on meta:

Spoiler alert is not working

  • all.css has #888 as the spoiler colour, but the background is #222. I get #E8F2EB for both on the main site, so either it's fixed there or I'm getting a cached version. – Tony Meyer Apr 18 '12 at 8:57
  • I fixed the markup on your question. there were embedded newline characters after each line. Did you copy paste that text, by chance? – OghmaOsiris Apr 19 '12 at 5:33
  • Spoilers work for me on the main site, but the colors on meta are still contrasting (not sure what would need to be spoilered here though). – Xantec Apr 19 '12 at 13:47
  • I asked this before and it was fixed... but somehow it got un-fixed. – hairboat Apr 23 '12 at 20:13
  • I like this bug a lot. – Shog9 Apr 23 '12 at 20:48
  • Is this broken again on main? Specifically on my answer at scifi.stackexchange.com/a/21289/4025 – Mark Beadles Jul 30 '12 at 23:45
  • @MarkBeadles Looks fine to me, I only see it on mouseover – Izkata Jul 31 '12 at 1:03

My spoiler markup wasn't working either, but turns out that you can't spoiler multiple paragraphs

This markup...

>! spoiler paragraph 1

>! spoiler paragraph 2

looks like this...

! spoiler paragraph 1

! spoiler paragraph 2

I had to be remove the intervening actual blank line, and append <br><br> to synthetically insert it again

spoiler paragraph 1

spoiler paragraph 2

The raw text now looks like...

>! spoiler paragraph 1<br><br>
>! spoiler paragraph 2
  • You can do multi-line spoilers without HTML markup, but it's not intuitive: example, source – user366 Sep 21 '12 at 15:40

I don't think the spoiler tags are working on either SFF or Meta. If I'm mistaken, correct me, but I thought spoiler tags looked like this:

> ! SPOILERS GO HERE < br > < br >

Without the spaces, of course. I tried to test the spoiler tag on SFF and it wouldn't work for me. And I can see the text of your spoiler message as grey against dark grey. When I mouse over it, it turns white. But it's definitely not hidden for me (and I'm talking about your meta post here)

THIS IS WITHOUT THE SPACES IN THE CODE AND I'LL BET YOU CAN SEE THE TEXT, YES?

Hopefully someone will have the magic answer!

I can repro this bug on meta but not on main. I pushed a fix for the meta spoiler text. It will be in the next production build.
