Help Me Make A Spoiler Box Please

There are times when it is necessary to make a spoiler box in the Cafe Society Forum. I can’t figure out how to do it.

I thought I was supposed to write spoiler in brackets before my text and after…like this:

[spoiler] text [spoiler]

but that doesn’t work. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks

The second one needs to be [/spoiler]. Without that closing backslash, it won’t work.

Like so!

YEAH I DID IT!!! THANK YOU. Now I just need to remember the secret codes.

Just remember that you can always quote a post to see what the author did.

[****spoiler]And that way, you can figure out what I did wrong here…[/****spoiler]

No space after the first bracket

/ = slash
\ = backslash

Thank you.

/ = slash
\ = whack

Now you know the secrets of the computer geeks.

Don’t confuse them, Lemur866. God help us all when they try to figure out what a “bang” is.
