It seems like this forum doesn't use the collapsible kind of spoilers, instead it just turns the text black-on-black, so it doesn't work with images.

It is definitely possible.

For historical reasons there are two kinds of spoilers on the forum, the blacktext one, and the collapsible one, and they only differ in the presence of a parameter.

Examples:
blacktext
reason

Code: Select all

[spoiler]blacktext[/spoiler]

[spoiler=reason]collapsible[/spoiler][/spoiler]
ovo

But why isn't the blacktext one hidden by default ??

When you want to hide a few words within a text, blackened spoiler tag is the way to go.
Collapsible spoilers are mostly useful for images, or whole paragraphs.
I would totally be in favor of having separate buttons for "inline spoiler" and "collapsible spoiler", with the appropriate syntax.
The current way is really confusing for the newcomers.

No, why doesn't the blacktext spoiler hide the text ?

FF52 speaking here : it does on mine. I'll test it with an up to date FF at home tonight.

Must be an issue on your phone : just tried with mine, and they work fine.
my Chrome and Android version
Text spoilers on my mobile phone
Sorry for the size of the screenshots. btw : how can one use a phone to post on a forum ? It's unbearable XD. Had to finish with my computer, too much a pain in the butt to do things on a smartphone.

On the tablet, and we both have same version must be a localised issue with this device, and or devices. :? (Also no issues using this over a desktop besides not being able to play factorio because why else do you own a pc?)

Update: blacktext works on 4chan, just not this forum.
