Spoiler alert code on my question is not working, also on meta:
Spoiler alert is not working
My spoiler markup wasn't working either, but turns out that you can't spoiler multiple paragraphs
>! 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
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!
