I would like to write reviews for some games and movies that have moved me in one way or another.
Instead of just writing the words "SPOILER ALERT" it would be nice to be able to hide the spoilers unless the reader clicks on a button that says "SHOW THIS SECTION".
I hate spoilers... this is because whenever I see spoiler alert, I read them. Unless, of course there is a button there that gives me the option to display the spoiler... this would be a great option to add... a show/hide capsule option for all capsule types.
Just my two cents.
I appreciate the suggestoin, Boots Iacono! My friends and I talk about this issue online (in general) a lot, so I see where you're coming from. I don't think we'll have the bandwidth to build a custom solution for this right now, but I'll certainly bring it up in tomorrow's community meeting.
Hey again Boots! Thought it does, indeed, look like we don't have the bandwidth to build a feature addressing this, you can definitely use the Quiz Capsule to hide spoilers behind a "yes" or "no" question (e.g. have you seen episode nine of Battlestar Galactica yet?).
Big thanks to Matt Meyer to thinking of that one. It's quite the simple and easy fix!
Although the Quiz Capsule is probably better for a movie spoiler alert, I used the thumbnail feature of the Photo Capsule to achieve a similar effect to obscure the answer key for a crossword puzzle (Plumber's Toilet). I needed to give two versions depending on whether someone was doing the puzzle online or had printed it out. I describe the technique in more detail in my hub, "Photo Capsule Advanced Techniques" http://howards.hubpages.com/hub/Photo-C … _16337598.

I've never been able to understand why the comments capsule is optional. After all, we have the ability to moderate and deny comments if we don't like them. Seems to me the only people who wouldn't want comments...

Why can I no longer indent each new paragraph in the text capsules? I noticed this a while back-I went to do some editing on an older hub and when I saved the capsule, the indent was gone. This drives me crazy! I prefer...

Many people like me have been deleting RSS capsules because the text, even a single sentence may be regarded as duplicate text from the host page. If you add eight RSS feeds, even with one sentence, adds up to 8...

Hi all I've created 6 pictures in one capsule. Now I thought from what I read it should turn into a slideshow once I have 5 or more pictures. Some say it's done automatically and others say it is an option once you...
