    Attention: Board colors will change, New spoiler text instructions are up.

    We are fixing the situation with the spoiler text today. Since this software uses the a standard HTML Web difined color definition table that is accepted across all web browsers types, I have to slightly change the colors of the forum in order to be able to accomodate spoiler text colors in the drop down menu for text colors (the one directly above your editor window when you reply or edit) which shows little boxes detailing the different colors you can use to color your text. This is because in oreder to use that drop down menu, I can only insert an accepted HTML defined color as noted above. Therefore I have to change the forum colors a little to accept that. So don't be too alarmed if you see the appearance of the forum change a little today. Later on I'll detail the instructions on how to use the new spoiler text methods, which will be easier than before.

    New Instructions for Spoiler Text.

    Okay guys, this should be easier to do now. Whenever you wish to mark spoiler text, this is the easier way to do it. You will go to your editor window as in the picture. You've seen this of course. You write your text and then you pull down the menu for changing the text color, which is the Letter "A", with the colored bar beneath it indicating the current text color.

    You will see the usual color choices available. The last color at the bottom right is white. I have left that unchanged. However, the two colors immediately preceding it are changed to give you the spoiler text colors. The third from the last color is the actual text color for your posts as follows:

    The second to the last color is the Spoiler text color for the nested quotes as indicated in the next picture:

    As with any text you wish of which you wish to change the color, you simply highlight the text and then click on the drop down menu and choose the appropriate color, including no the spoiler text colors when you wish.

    Pastels... Um, ok...

    At least we've got working spoiler text now, though!

    No, not really. They're still running KP on Disney Channel. Besides, this forum isn't only about Kim and her adventures; it's a place where we can converse about practically anything. "Kim Possible" is just one thing we have in common. As we continue to post we'll undoubtedly find more. So, IMHO, it pays to continually upgrade the forum.

    Well, it's true that the spoiler text's primary use was with information on the new eps coming out, but there may still be times when it would be useful.

    As long as we can get some use out of it then that's awesome. I personally will have to think pretty hard to figure something to use for it.

    True. For instance, if you don't want to give away the plot of some new movie when some of our members haven't seen it yet. Spoiler text comes in mighty handy at moments like that.
