How to make spoiler bars for NC-17 Drabbles

Postby Belen » Sun Apr 03, 2011 5:26 pm

Er . . . do you 'allow' NC-17 drabbles?

I have an idea for a drabble (playlist type) but I have to write a certain way if not NC-17.

Thanks

We've done them before. Just put a huge-assed NC-17 warning, then post the drabble in quote tags, and change the font color to white. That way if someone actually *wants* to see it and they're of age, they have to highlight it to see it...but the underage are warned away and no one's confronted with smut if they don't want to read it.

We used to have a way to jimmy rig a "spoiler bar" by changing the text to white and putting it in quotes, but that doesn't work on this board.

So, you can submit to the archive and link to it!

Testing the double quote

Testing another color


That one was #BFFFFF -- [ color = #BFFFFF ] Text [ / color ] (without the spaces)

Testing one more color


That one was #BFFFBF -- [ color = #BFFFBF ] Text [ / color ] (without the spaces, of course)

I think it's doable. :mrgreen:

The white text is a no go for me, I can read it easily. But the green is illegible! I say with go with the green - unless someone else can read it?? :)

Mine was #FFFFFF. I take it that's the "white" you're saying you can see, Honeybee?

I have no idea which of those are "green" since I can't see the text?

Yes, #FFFFFF is legible on my screen. So is #BFFFFF. But the one that is #BFFFBF is not readable at all.

Same here. I can read the white perfectly. The #BFFFFF I have to strain my eyeballs a bit, but I can read it. The last one is totally unreadable for me.

Okay, that's weird. I can't see any of them, unless I tilt my screen some weirdassed and unnatural way...and even then I'm giving myself a headache to see what it actually says.
