    I really feel stupid, but I actually can't figure out how to spoiler tag stuff now. What have I missed? :O

    Click on the little box with the + sign and it gives you a few options. Second one down is 'Spoiler'.

    It's in the greyed-out bar that runs along the top of the reply box, four in from the right :)

    Heh, this is getting ridiculous (on my end), but I still don't get it. Here's a screen dump from what I see.

    You can just type out the tags. [ spoiler ] text here [/ spoiler ]

    Since I’m a total tech idiot, take this with a big grain of salt. :O But you appear to be in basic “BB Code Editor” mode. This may be why the “+” sign icon doesn’t show up on your “gray bar.” :shrug: In which case, just type out the tags (as was mentioned). Also, have a look at the bottom of the edit window; you may see an option to switch over to “Rich Text Editor.”

    Aha, so typing the [ spoiler ] [ /spoiler ] tags manually work as well? I'm kinda used to that when it comes to images. Thing is I tried that but it didn't work . I guess I screwed it up . Well, I'll try again.

    Thanks everyone for your inputs!

    Yes, the tags will work so long as you do not put any spaces between the characters.
    Like so.
