Ah, ok, thanks. --phobia @ the Shoggoth Network 14:57, 2 February 2006 (EST)

  • I see the problem with the [[links]] - You shouldn't have to nowiki it. I'll see what trickery I can perform with CSS tonight or this weekend. --Squashua 15:43, 2 February 2006 (EST)
  • its not possible to highlight and click, so i just deleted the links and made them plaintext.
    • I'm going to re-do it as a DIV and set sub-anchors to be underlined when rolled-over in order to preserve links. --Squashua 16:13, 2 February 2006 (EST)
    • Meh; no more scrollover - sucks. I'll standardize a solution or two from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Spoiler_warning --Squashua 16:47, 2 February 2006 (EST)
    • I think the scrollover is better, IMO. Players will find the Wiki as useful as keepers when that is the employed method. An alternate is to put the spoilers on a linked page. --phobia @ the Shoggoth Network 17:05, 2 February 2006 (EST)
      • The thing is, I tried something new/cool, but it didn't work with the links; I just can't change their color. Bleh.--Squashua 17:18, 2 February 2006 (EST)
      • I figured as much. We don't really need links in text that is spoilers, do we? Alternately, you could make them White with White underline when not highlighted, then you'd still be able to see them. --phobia @ the Shoggoth Network 17:19, 2 February 2006 (EST)
      • See revised above; that's the thing - you CANNOT change the style of an HTML Anchor without editing the CSS file. In-line HTML inserts of <style> tags get removed by the wiki parser. Of course, as a moderator, I should have access... --Squashua 17:21, 2 February 2006 (EST)
      • Yeah, I see what you mean. I suppose you could alter the Anchors to inherit certain aspects of style then put the relevant color changing aspects on the containing Div. Might take a while to work that out exactly, though. --phobia @ the Shoggoth Network 17:30, 2 February 2006 (EST)
        • That's what I did do originally - click me]. I set the div id to the value of spoiler and I set up the spoiler style in a preceding style block. This works fine in normal HTML. The problem is that the wiki escapes certain html blocks so that they do not get parsed - this includes CSS style blocks as follows. Anyway, we have someone complaining that it doesn't work for them; I changed it to black-on-black and we'll see if that works, if not I say we go with traditional wiki-style for readability purposes. --Squashua 09:39, 4 February 2006 (EST)
