How should I go about adding a "show/hide" box in a forum thread?

Thanks

The answer to the question, for anyone else who wants to know, is this:

Code: Select all
[spoiler]This is called a spoiler.[/spoiler]


show


You can also name the spoilers like this:

Code: Select all
[spoiler=I Just Named this Spoiler]This is called a spoiler.[/spoiler]


show: I Just Named this Spoiler



Also, an additional lesson: if someone does something in a post that you like or want to duplicate, but can't figure out how, just quote the post and you can see how it was done.

Is it possible to add a "show/hide" box within an existing "show/hide" box?

I thought to write something like
show: I Just Named this Spoiler
[/spoiler] but it doesn't work.

Many thanks.

That's correct, other forums have that feature but not this one.

Thanks for the reply, guys.

Is it possible to create tables one under the other instead? Then the different sections can be clearly framed in different tables.

Thanks !
