    Hmmm...
    Can you describe the steps you take before getting that message?

    Also, you know who to blame.

    When trying to insert a spoiler via the button, it fills it like this:

    Code:
    [SPOILER="snape kills dumbledore"][/SPOILER]

    when it should be:

    Code:
    [SPOILER]snape kills dumbledore[/SPOILER]
    snape kills dumbledore

    @vtac :)

    OK, I think I see what's happening for you. When you click the spoiler button it prompts you for a spoiler title. This is optional and will be displayed on the spoiler button. You can skip entering a title by pressing "Continue"

    After the spoiler tag is inserted you have to type the text you want hidden between the spoiler tags.

    In your first example the spoiler text is entered as a title attribute with nothing between the tags themselves. This will throw an error.

    I think you're doing it wrong. Stop spoiling the spoiler. :D

    That's strange. :hmm: Your post here shows text before a spoiler. What do you see when you click the "Spoiler" button in your post?
    Test.

    To be honest I have no clue how to do a screen shot but maybe my problem is more my 'I really have no idea what I'm doing' way I compute around electronic media then anything else.

    When I type out a message, if I put a spoiler after I lose the text above it. In my above post I just made the spoiler tag first and added the message after. not as fluid when I type but it worked alright.

    Definitely makes the spoiler feature more fun. I watched the instructional vid, and everything works as advertized. Can you put pics in the spoiler tag?

    @RUDE BOY There may be a javascript issue somewhere and I'm sure the developers will find out about it and fix if so. For the time being you can type out the spolier tags manually if you need them. :)

    It doesn't appear to work in private conversations. It does work across multiple threads though.

    By the way, the addition of the "quote" button makes the "report" and "like" buttons overlap on mobile ;)
