Go to quoted post doesn't work on quote in spoilers


(Anders Thengs Kristensen) #1

If you quote a post and add spoiler tags around it, the “go to the quoted post” button doesn’t work as expected. Unlike the expand/collapse button it only toggles the spoiler blur. It doesn’t bring you to the quoted post.

Can you post an example in a reply here? You mean the entire post has to be spoilered?

I’ve just tried doing it!

Looks like it’s missing the styling of quote tags

Trying it with [spoiler] and [quote] on separate lines (you can’t click the buttons on the quote (username/name or the go to post) – which sort of makes sense, probably could treat it similar to how links are handled.

So it is something related to the implementation of markdown. We have to use some things with extra caution right?

No. Even using spoiler tags on a quote of part of a post has this problem. (But when you use spoiler tags on a partial quote the expand/collapse button still works)

I’d say spoilering an entire quote is kind of griefing; the intent is to spoiler sections of a post, not a quote. (And also, why would something posted by a user earlier in the topic, or in another topic, be a spoiler?)
