    Default Using [b]Bold[/b], [I]italics[/I], etc within a spoiler tag?

    I hope this is the right place for this post.

    Is there any way to use bold, underline, italics and so on within the name of a spoiler tag? for example if I wanted to use "Lions, and tigers and bears!" as my spoiler title, could I?

    My issue is, whenever I try to, the closing "]" of the BB command finishes the spoiler title.

    So, what I've offered above, typed as (switching "[" with "{", so you could read the code):

    {SPOILER=Lions, and {I}tigers{/I} and bears!}text for spoiler tag.{/SPOILER}


    comes up like so:
    Spoiler: Lions, and [I
    Show
    tigers[/I] and bears!]text for spoiler tag.


    Is there any way to solve this?

    I don't think it's possible. The "custom text" that you can use to title the spoiler tag is inside a piece of BB code itself:

    [spoiler=THIS IS INSIDE THE SPOILER BB CODE TAG][/spoiler]

    and thus wouldn't be interpreted by the forum software as an independent piece of code.
    By experimenting, it seems that the interpretation of the custom titles in the spoiler tags ends at the first occurrence of a closing bracket ].

    Oh well. I thought that's probably the case, but I thought I might as well check. Thanks!
