How to hide part of your signature, with a button to reveal it

Recommended Posts

When you edit your profile, there is an option to edit your signature.  That's easy.  What you want to do, so as not to have a huge signature that everyone has to read, is hide a portion of it so they have to click on it to see it.


 


That's done various ways, but using BBCode is the best - using HTML can cause issues in Android plus the forum software may display someone else's signature if you don't make your code unique -so use BBCode.  I didn't realize BBCode was an option initially.


 


BBCode:


 


[spoiler=NAMEOFBUTTONGOESHERE]


 


Text you want to hide goes here


 


[/spoiler]

With the upgraded Community, there are slight modifications to the signature hidden elements.

 

The BB code posted by RickBeer will work in posts/threads, but it may not work in the signatures.

 

Luckily, we now have a button for spoilers.  Just highlight the text you wish to hide and select the "eye" button at the top right of the editor box.
