What am I doing wrong here that I can't create a "spoiler" thingy?

start with [

followed by the word spoiler,

then at the end {

followed by /

followed by the word spoiler

which I thought SHOULD do it, but does not.

What else is there to this?

Follow the word spoiler (both times), with ]
And, also, before the second 'spoiler', it's [, not {.

There is a spoiler button right up there at the top of the box; click on it and then enter the information as indicated by the cursor (notice that it's flashing between ] and [).

Good luck!

Thanks for the technical help. I guess the "right answer" to "how do you do the spoiler thingy?" is not what is written at the top of this thread

That's a work-around. If someone types out the exact characters to show how to do the spoiler thing, the board software will generate a spoiler rather than showing those exact characters. I don't know of a way to indicate "literal text, not to be interpreted as code" on this message board.
