Hi all,

Is there a way to hide some part of a post.
Something like: to see this part please reply to this post.

I have seen this functionnality of others forums and I need it :)

There is not yet such a module. There was some hiding module IIRC, but that one was to hide a part of the message and to let only some specified user see that part.

What about the Spoiler module?

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

I do not want to hide some part to specific user. I want to hide some part of a message. After the user (all user) reply it will see the hidden part.

Is it difficult to add a code to the phorum editor bar (standard one)?
is it difficult to create this addon (as I am not familiar with Phorum development)

Still sounds like the spoiler module to me, except to see the hidden part you click a spoiler button instead of replying.

Isn't that good enough?

Maybe if you explained exactly how you want to use it it would help.

He wants to make the text visual after posting a reply. I can imagine some situations where this would be useful (posting an answer to a quiz question, where you get to see the correct answer after you posted, thank kind of stuff). This is different from how the spoiler does its job. With that one, the user can initiate viewing of the hidden data before sending in a reply.

@rangdalf: Adding extra buttons to the editor tools bar is not difficult. There is a plugin mechanism available for that. The BBcode and Smileys module both do this. Also the BBcode GeSHi module, BBcode Google module and Embed MP3 module implement extra buttons for this bar. Take a look at them for implementation examples.

Hi,

This is exactly what you suggest mmakaay!
Something like question/answer!

I will have a look at the mode you mentionned.
