Spoiler Alert BB Code - New Look for VB5 1.00

No permission to download
This is based on an old spoiler code widely available as "Reusable Code" in the VB 3.x days but since removed. It has been updated with new colors, rounded borders, and shadows for new look and fully compatible with VB5.

This is a BB Code to hide content from people who don't want to accidentally see it- usually used for "spoilers" about TV Shows, Movies, or sporting events.

Live Demo:

Closed State:


Open State:


Nested (on VB5):


Tested and working on VB 3.x, 4.x, and 5.x!
Tested and working in Chrome, IE, Opera, and Safari

Note- Because it uses JavaScript you must refresh the page after submitting a post so the JS loads correctly. Other people viewing the post after you will not have any problems.

This BBCode relies on a background image (bop5-alert-bk.png) that must be uploaded to your /images/misc/ folder.


To install download the XML if you have the BBCode XML importer or add a custom BBCode with these settings:

Please "Mark as Installed" if you use this.

NOTE: Do not download the .xml fie unless you have the old obscure mod for VB 3.x to allow BBCode Importing via XML. This is NOT a VB Product file and will not import for 99.9% of you. Use the manual instructions instead. I only included the file because there is a rule where every mod thread is technically supposed to have an attached file to download.
