Default How do I make that cool spoiler tag?

I can't figure it out at all.

make your text black like this:

spoiler below - highlight to read
"darth vader is luke's father"

Notice I didn't make the quotes black? That way, people know there's a spoiler between the quotes. It's the poor-man's way of doing spoilers or in forums without spoiler tags.

or hit the black square above (in advanced).

spoiler!


When you hit the spoiler button above, it'll ask you for an option for your tag. That'll be the text you have to warn people it's a spoiler like, "spoilers be here!" or something.

My problem was with the black box. Now I know you must put spoiler in the popup window when you click it. Got it.

I already have a Babel Fish, thanks. Why would I not get one though? It is only the THIRD worst poetry in the Universe!
