In episode 10 of this mini-series, we’ll take a look at hiding and blurring pieces of your posts in the community. Why would you wanna do that?
Find out below.



Note: You can find both features when clicking the cogwheel button in the editor.



:one: Hide Details


The Hide Details feature can be helpful when you want to write a condensed (aka TLDR) version of your post.


If you use this feature, readers who are in a hurry will be able to focus on the shorter version of your text while those who want to get the full context can click the arrow and dive into all the details.

Try it out:

Click Me

See, this is where all the β€˜extra’ info will be displayed.



:two: Blur Spoiler


The Blur Spoiler feature literally blurs pieces of your post for the readers. To see the full text, they need to click the blurred part.


This can be helpful when you’re posting a solution that teased your brain and you want to give other Makes the chance to try to figure it out on their own.

Try it out: What do you call a crocodile that merges a bunch of data bundles into a single bundle?
