    I'm using safari on an iMac and I don't see a spoiler button in the reply screen. I'm probably going blind and not seeing it. :) Can you point it out for me?

    I realize it's not clearly indicated in the editor.

    If you are using the full editor, look at the third button from
    the left, BBCode.

    Click on it and select Spoiler.

    The editor is going to be going through a total revamp for
    the next release of this software (coming very soon). It is
    my hope that functions like this will be much more visible to
    our members.

    Thanks, Ron. That did it for me. I think there should be a Spoiler button, similar to the Quote button. Those are two commonly used functions. IMHO.

    I agree, Johnny. What editor doesn't have such a button?

    .....ours!

    As I noted, there is a complete overhaul on the way for the
    editor on this platform. I am hoping it will involve adding an
    actual spoiler button.
