There is a trigger button when you slect show all under the smilies, however I'm not sure how some people have actaully hidden what they have written under the button

Hey guys,

There are a few options with this! The first is that you can just write "Trigger warning", or put a T, *T*, t, etc in your posts title to warn others.

You can add a graphic of a trigger warning, which looks like this: :trigger: Type :trigger : without the space between "trigger" and the colon.

You can also add in a spoiler, which hides what you type so members need to choose to view it. To do it, just type [spoiler ] your text [/spoiler ] (but remove the spaces between "spoiler" and the square bracket for both the opening and closing tags. It will look like this:


If you are using this on the board, it helps to put a warning above the spoiler box to let people know what it is that is hidden (e.g. "May trigger - graphic description of rape" etc)

I hope that helps!

I never knew how to do the spoiler thing before, and I've always thought it's a great way to make sure nobody sees anything that might upset them by accident or anything - now I know how! :)
