This has always been happening, though it's never really irritated me until now. Occasionally spoilers won't open. As in I'll click on the "Spoiler" button and nothing will happen. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't, I'm afraid I can't give any specific examples. Any idea why this is happening?

I think it's just Javascript being a little static, as in it could have been coded better. But I'm not entirely sure, I haven't looked into it.

However, on refresh it should be fine. Could also be a browser fault at times.

Spoilers are javascript, aren't they? Certainly when I block it the spoilers don't open. Make sure javascript is on, I guess. Though if you say it's only sometimes...

This happened to me today, but I just waited awhile and then they worked again.

I run into it sometimes, too. On other forums, too, so it's not just PC. Just refresh.

Thanks for all the help guys. Most of the time if it happens I'll just click preview post again, or click on the thread again, instead of the refresh button - for some reason that has a different effect on the spoilers and makes most of them work.
