Usage

To mark a text as spoiler, enclose the passage with [spoiler] and [/spoiler].
Example:
Spoiler: [spoiler]Bruce Willis is a ghost![/spoiler]

The result is shown in the screenshot section.

Customize

The language of the link text has to be changed in the pluginfile itself: wpSpoiler.php.

CSS can be used to style the spoiler box and the links. The spoiler-div is identified by the classname spoiler_div.
The link’s class is spoiler_link_show or spoiler_link_hide, depending on the current state.

An example stylesheet code snippet:

/* wpSpoiler */
a.spoiler_link_show,
a.spoiler_link_hide {
    background-repeat:      no-repeat;
    background-position:    left center;
    padding-left:           18px;
}
a.spoiler_link_show {
    background-image:       url(images/add.png);
}
a.spoiler_link_hide {
    background-image:       url(images/delete.png);
}
div.spoiler_div {
    background-color:       #ddd;
    margin-top:             -10px;
    padding:                2px;
}
