Spoiler tag solution

Mighty JMighty J Registered User
I forgot to mention this in the earlier thread about spoiler tags. There's an extension called BBCode that has most of the tags people use on forums, accessed in the right click menu. You can also add custom tags, like spoilers, custom images, etc.

So if you want to use spoilers without having to type the tags out, just install the extension, and it has settings in the bbcode right click menu. Click on BBCode -> Settings, then on the Custom Tags tab.

Then just select 1 in "Number of Custom Tags" and there will be an area for you to label the tag. Just put in "Spoilers" in the Label box, and
_value_
and click ok.

And that's it. Just select the text you want to spoiler tag, and select the tag in the bbcode right click menu. If you want to add more tags, just select how many you want to make, and there's a wiki that shows you how to make different kinds.

    Err. It doesn't want to work with Firefox 2.0. Even though the site clearly says it works with 1.0 - 3.0a1

    :(

    Yeah, it won't install for me - it says it only works with Firefox versions 0.9 through 1.4 by default.

    fake edit: You can modify the install.rdf within the .xpi to get it to install in Firefox 2.0. The site linked in the OP explains how to do this...I got it working.

    Nevermind. He tells you have to change the version number at the bottom of the page.

    You know, every ontopic forum has a rule about abusing realspoiler tags.

    Hey, I didn't know it could do that. It spoiled me.

    OK. Now run along to your other forum and post about how I don't care what you think.

    It is quite obvious to anyone with even a modicum of sense that I was not abusing the tag. I was demonstrating that it worked with the aforementioned Firefox extension.

    One thread was all I asked for. Just one.

    I mean, this one seemed really promising in the beginning. It was someone being helpful, and showing people something neat (thank you, Mighty J).

    So, the next person who posts something which is not constructive in this thread is getting banned, and I swear I'm not going to be nice about it and just lock it this time.

    Oh yeah, I should've mentioned it'll install just fine if you have Nightly Tester Tools. It's another extension, that makes firefox install any extension, whether it's compatible or not. I think it works for themes also.



    Alright, I'll stop shilling extensions now.

    You guys are so lazy. This is like ordering groceries online. Other than spoilers, realspoilers, and lime, I can't think of any other tags that aren';t listed that are commonly used.

    And besides, it's fun to laugh at new people who post stuff like
    MightyJ was born with webbed feet
    thinking that they've limed it. Or they get confused.

    This will probably come in handy the next time someone is making a thread littered with spoilers, though, and I guess it's nice to know it's around. There is a thread I've been thinking of making for a while where it could really come in handy.

    Does anyone know of any similar extensions for Opera that operate the same way? Firefox is too resource intensive (that's the polite way of putting it) for my machine.

    Are we done with this thread? It looks like we're basically done. I'm gonna lock it--if it needs to be unlocked for any serious reason, let me know.
