    Several of the other forums I frequent have an in-line spoiler option, in addition to the regular spoiler block insert. It basically blurs out a word or phrase without breaking up a sentence with a hidden spoiler block.



    Is this something that could be implemented using [ISPOILER]Spoiler[/ISPOILER]?

    Could be an interesting alternative. The current spoiler tags break in quotes. I support this!

    It would have to be in addition to the current version, since a lot of the times when spoiler tags are used, it's for images that are either larger than normal, or that might be controversial, disturbing, or skirting the forum rules a bit.

    It would also have to work on every skin, as typing in the same color as the background won't help if someone else is using a different theme and can still see the text.

    That's what I meant, "in addition to" not "instead of", which is what the other forums do. It's mainly meant to spoiler in-line text.

    I had no idea people conversed in site feedback.

    I like the blur out as an option.
