Why can't I turn the spoilers on?!:

I've returned to my profile about FIVE TIMES NOW, and every time, the spoilers are on "VISABLE", yet every time I go to a page, they're blocked out! I even created a new account to see if it was just problems with my first one, but that didn't work either? Is anyone else having this problem?! Can someone fix it?!

Is this still happening? Have you refreshed the page? There was bug earlier.

I'm getting the same thing. I've cleared my cache completely, reset the buttons in my profile to "default: spoilers visible", tried a force refresh on the page, and I still have gaps where spoilers are. Vista/Seamonkey
...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
I've tried refreshing and all that good stuff, still nothing! And whenever I return to my profile, it's set to "show spoilers"! WTF?!

same problems here

I have no answers because I am in the same boat. I actually posted a forum comment a few minutes before your post about the exact same thing.

Try her now.

Well, I can see the spoilers now, but for some reason, the links to other tropes in-text are still blocked. It's not as much of a hinderance, but it's really really annoying.

Most of the spoilers are working but some will have some words showing and others not. This might be the links to other posts thing that the previous poster is talking about, b/c when I highlighted one of the blank spaces it was a link to the "jerk jock" trope.

That's another thing. If I highlight everything, it all shows up. Useful, but too-time consuming.

What page are you seeing this on?

That's what I'm gettig too. Most of the spoiler is visible, but any links are still blank spaces. It's on Pregnant Hostage, for one Live Action TV, Law and Order SVU example. The spoiler is visible, but not the link to Blasphemous Boast.

Screencap:

...if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you for it.
Okay, I think he's fixed.

Appears to be for me. Thanks.

I'm getting the opposite thing - most of the spoiler looks fine, but external links are unaffected. Using Firefox 3.6.

Edit: Same with red links.

Regulated fun - the best kind!
I don't make the rules, just enforce them with an iron fist.
Redlinks have never worked in spoiler font. Foreign URL links in spoilers should be working right, now.

No, I can still see them just fine.

Oh. You are seeing them when you don't want to? Didn't get that. Thought you were saying they didn't show up when your preference is 'visible.' Hang on, then.

eta: Should be good to go.

To quote GIR:"IT'S FIIIIXED!"

Thank you.

I cannot make spoilers visible no matter how hard I try.

What browser?
Goal: Clear, Concise and Witty
Firefox.

I am recently receiving this too. I have tried logout/login, clearing C+C, etc. but no luck. I'm getting it on all pages from the last day or so. Does anyone know a way for me to trouble shoot this? I'd really appreciate any help that I can get. Thank you in advance.grin

The fix will take a while to go out to browsers. The fix has been made, but we have to wait for the distributed caches to notice the change. This can take up to a full day.

Or longer, apparently, I'm still having the problem. I just cleared my cache and it's still having no effect, as I still can't see the spoilers despite having them set visible.
