Hi everyone,

When quoting a long paragraph someone wrote, or especially when quoting one person who had quoted someone else et cetera, use the spoiler feature ;) .

Here's how:

Type the text you want to say (e.g. life is good, LG).

life is good, LG

Second, go the editing row (where it shows bold, italic, etc...). Starting from bold, go 18 features to the left (the 18th, including bold). Note: if you hover your mouse over it, it should say "spoiler".

Next, highlight your text:

life is good, LG

Click on the spoiler button, and it will be a spoiler :cheer:

Advantages of people using the spoiler feature while quoting:

1. More posts per page
2. Less scrolling to see new posts
3. Don't see the same quote multiple times

When quoting images, put them in spoilers too.

For example, you click on the Image button in the Reply section and put in your image url.

As soon as you hit Insert, you will see an code. Highlight the URL inside of the code along with the [img] tags.. Hit the Spoiler button and now your images don't take up spaces in quotes. If you aren't adding your own images, simply follow the steps from the second sentence of the third section which starts with the word Highlight. Happy quoting![img] code. Highlight the URL inside of the code along with the tags.. Hit the Spoiler button and now your images don't take up spaces in quotes. If you aren't adding your own images, simply follow the steps from the second sentence of the third section which starts with the word Highlight. Happy quoting![img] tags.. Hit the Spoiler button and now your images don't take up spaces in quotes.

If you aren't adding your own images, simply follow the steps from the second sentence of the third section which starts with the word Highlight.

Happy quoting!

Instead of doing this:
[spoiler][quote="jericho"]Jericho is awesome[/quote][/spoiler]

Which gives you:
Warning: Spoiler! [ Click to expand ]


Try to do this:
[quote="jericho"][spoiler]Jericho is awesome[/spoiler][/quote]

Which gives you this:jericho wrote:

In short, this means that instead of putting the whole quote in the spoiler, we could put just the content in the spoiler, and leave "user wrote:" outside the spoiler.
