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 click to activate a link.

The failure there was that the link wasn't actually hidden in the first place because of the cascading nature of CSS and it wasn't a scenario I had thought of. That should be fixed now, but you might have to do a "refresh" to force the CSS to update to the new version.

But it still only takes one click to activate a link.

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 how well it works in certain situations. Printed material, for instance, nothing gets hidden, so if you use it in a clue, the spoiler doesn't get hidden in the printed version of it. If someone has AQ mail forwarded to a real email address, the spoiler won't be hidden in the email. It'll only work when the markup is viewed directly on AQ.

Wow! Very cool. Thanks Ryan.
Also I can see that it will open up some very interesting possibilities for clues. Hmm...

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.

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.

Looks like someone has already used your suggestion. ;-)

I was trying to explain to a friend how this works and I notice it’s not on the markup page yet. Just sayin’. 😄

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 comparisons page.)

I'll get around to fixing the other pages... eventually. =)

Hmm, I was unaware of that page. Good to know. Thanks!

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.
