Spoiler Tags

Posted by Louise on January 20, 2011
After I finish reading a book, I'm excited to discuss it with others on Goodreads. Some of these other people may not have read the book yet and would be pretty angry if I had spoiled the ending for them. That's why we finally added in support for spoiler tags.

In discussion group comments and book reviews, members can now mark text as spoilers by surrounding the text with <spoiler> and </spoiler> tags. Anything between those tags will be hidden in a "(view spoiler)" link. The spoilers won't be revealed until that link is clicked.


We've been talking about spoiler tags in this feedback thread. Join us in there for questions and comments.
