~ How to insert a (view spoiler)~

Do you want to write a review and you’re dying to make a comment to some of the lucky readers who have already read the book? Certainly you don’t want to checkmark the box “hide entire review because of spoilers” – which would hide all your hard work. Still, you don’t want to ruin a delicious surprise for others. Like this one: (view spoiler) Ditto for a discussion thread?

Solution: (view spoiler)

To insert a “view spoiler” into your text type in the word spoiler between a greater-than sign and a less-than sign < > and then type your desired hidden text. When finished, type in the word /spoiler between the greater-than and less-than signs < > (note: now there is a forward-slash in front of the word).

Always do a preview to see what will show and what won't.

Explained a second way: Type the following that is in bold without the asterisks * present.
<*spoiler*>This is the text that will be hidden.<*/spoiler*>
Again, just don't put the * symbols between the greater than and less than signs.

If all else fails, look at the title of this topic and type your hidden text between the ellipsis (three dots...)

Try it!

If you are using GR app, you can't do preview.

If you are on site, then beside post button you'll see light gray preview. Click on it and you'll get pop-up of your post.

Martha | 16 comments Thanks Tea


Berit Talks Books (berittalksbooks) (view spoiler) let's see if it works :-)


message 22: by ❀Tea❀ (new)

❀Tea❀ (ttea) | 9471 comments It works :)


Berit Talks Books (berittalksbooks) Thanks! I just couldn't figure out how to and then continue, if that makes sense?


message 24: by ❀Tea❀ (new)

❀Tea❀ (ttea) | 9471 comments I know. Sometimes it takes time to figure them out.

And just little hint. If you are writing in spoiler and start sentence in new line (like new paragraph) and if someone replies to you, your whole spoiler will show up. There won't be that [spoiler removed] thing.


Berit Talks Books (berittalksbooks) Well that is a bummer! Good to know :-)
