Collapsing Text Box

Heya Guys,

Thanks to our wonderful new sys admin @Azathoth we now have the spoiler tags working! And its great to see how different they are from most forums. Very cool!
However because i was expecting the far less snazzy ‘collapsing text box’ style spoiler i now realise i cant use the spoiler tag as i was going to. Which is as a ‘Collapsing text box’ for hiding Lists, DXdiags etc.

Collapsing text boxes can also be helpful for users who would like to hide lists within the OP. An example of a post where this could be utilized is Official Mod List - Greenheart Games Forum

Here is a rough idea of what i mean;

Unfortunately, it doesn’t exactly work with mentions… or bare links…

A JS plugin is the way to go.
