    Can we have a 3rd quote button, which would do a quote in the spoiler style?

    For example:

    QUOTE(DeadlyFoez @ Dec 28 2009, 09:17 PM) <a href="http://gbatemp.net/index.php?act=findpost&pid=199396" target="_blank"><img src="http://gbatemp.net/style_images/2/post_snapback.gif" border="0" class="linked-image" /></a>

    It would make easier than manually adding the spoiler tag, then the title and quote.

    Not a bad idea, or even a quote button that would automatically truncate quotes larger than a certain length (though maybe not that so much).

    While we're at it we could have spoiler-in-spoilers [​IMG]

    It's far from being necessary but I like your suggestion.

    Great idea, this will make threads look better.

    What about extending it to the [ IMG ],[ Youtube ],[ Quote ] and [ Link ] tags on the Reply window as well

    We could have a small 'tick-box' on the Reply window called (possibly) 'Collapsed' - which we can set 'on' or 'off' as default through our control panel

    - & if 'On' (or 'ticked') & we click a quote/img/youtube button - it will automatically add [ spoiler ] tags to it, so that we end up with
    Code:
     [spoiler][img]....[/img][/spoiler] 
    [spoiler][quote]....[/quote][/spoiler] 
    [spoiler][youtube]....[/youtube][/spoiler]
    Although the only problem I see with that is if you want to put multiple links/pictures etc - you got to remember to remove the 'tick'

    So on second thoughts - how about extra buttons instead like [Insert SpoilerLink],[Insert SpoilerImg],[Insert SpoilerQuote] and [Insert SpoilerYoutube]

    I think I know what you were saying...but...no. The simple spoiler setup as it is is fine for normal use, I think.
