I've gone ahead and changed it. Happy trails! -- Ryan

I’m wondering if it’s possible to turn on or enable spoiler tags on this site? I stumbled across a cool artist I thought would be fun to share with the LTCer in a forum post but as I scrolled through her work, I noticed there were a couple of painting...

That's an interesting idea.... I'd never heard of a spoiler tag before. How do you imagine it would look? I googled for information about spoiler tags and see a couple of different ways it might work, but how have you seen it used in the past? -- Ryan

They are used on several other message boards I visit occasionally. I believe they are used like this: [spoiler] [/spoiler] See post 22 in this thread for an example: https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=843800

Goodreads is one site that uses spoiler tags. On Goodreads people post reviews of books they've read, so any spoilers in their reviews can be placed between spoiler tags. Spoiler tags on Goodreads

So I've been playing around with simple ways to make this work, and I have a working version... more-or-less. You might have to click the "refresh" button on your browser to see it work if your browser is using a cached version of the CSS. -- Ryan

Let’s see if it works. Testing 1, 2, 3. ETA: Hmm, not sure I got it. I used both brackets, </spoiler> and [/spoiler]. What am I not doing right?
by Green TortugaProfileContactLogbookNote

... Try clicking that 'refresh' button on your browser. I updated the CSS code, but if your browser is using the old version, you won't see anything. Eventually your browser will pick up the new version, but I set up AQ so it only checks new versions...

Way cool!

So as a test one could show Ryan's alter ego to see if the spoiler aspect hides the info for those who don't want to know. https://goo.gl/images/577at4 .

Hmm...I am not seeing a second click option to the link. Failed test?

... Well... yes and no. Just hovering a mouse cursor over the spoiler is enough to get it to show. Since things like smartphones don't have a mouse, you can tap it (or with a keyboard, move the focus to it) and it'll show. But it only takes a single cl...

I should also point out.... The spoiler tag is something that's embedded into the wiki/html markups, so it actually works anywhere you can type in wiki/html markup. Including AQ mail and clues.... Just sayin'.... ;o) Although there are caveats about...

Wow! Very cool. Thanks Ryan. Also I can see that it will open up some very interesting possibilities for clues. Hmm... ... Yeah, that’s the kind of thing I was thinking about. Well done, oh and now I see why Ryan’s favorite color is purple.

I've tried several times to log an unlisted traditional attempt today and each time, it records it as a find. At first, I thought I didn't check the box for attempt, but I removed the find and tried two more times to log it...no luck. The unlisted bo...

... Sorry about that. Bug in the code, but it should be fixed now! ... That would be because someone already recorded an unlisted find with that name and your find is attached to it. The database isn't very good at recognizing when the capitalization...

Thanks for fixing the bug! I appreciate it. As for the capitalization, that makes sense, but I really did think I was the first to log this particular box. I'll keep your suggestions in mind going forward! Thanks!

... Hmm.... I took a look at the code, and you might be right. It looks like I mis-remembered how the code works where AQ automatically capitalizes the first letter of each word. The rest of what I wrote is true--however it's stored in the database i...

Okay.... I take back some of what I said in my last post. I was digging into the code more and this is what happens.... =) When you click the "Create New Entry" to add new unlisted box, it'll automatically capitalize everything on the next page where...

Thanks Ryan for taking the time to check into this and to explain how it all works! :-)

... Actually.... it is on the markup comparisons page. I was a little lazy trying to work it into the Wiki and HTML markup pages, though, neither of which is as complete as the markup comparisons page. (You also won't find the wassa tag except on the c...

... I was going to post that there is no way to get to that page, but I found it at the bottom (last sentence) of the Wiki Markup Help and HTML Help pages. I'm posting that information here so that others will know as well.

Is this something that is still available? I have an Android phone and can't find it. When I look for it in Play Store many sites come up but they are mostly for 'feminine issues' and one for the game of Clue. Any help or advice. Is there anything...

Clue Tracker is an app for Apple products and not for Androids.

Clue Tracker is only for iphones. The android version was called Box Radar but it is no longer available. Rumor is that a new android app may be in the works.

Hi. TrailMark and I are the authors of the letterboxing app Clue Tracker. It's currently only in Apple's App Store but we *ARE* developing a version for use on Android. You can read about it more here: https://cluetracker.pearlcrescent.com/andro...

Thanks all for letting me know. I'm anxious to see the results in 2019.

I was wondering if there is a way to have the private messages on a find somehow listed in a seperate section under the Box Comments that only the owner of the box can see. Presently the only way to keep private messages is the keep them in you mailbox.
