Image spoiler for mobile



  • eroda

    I just seen someone do this in a channel. I dont know what he did but I'm enquiring

    Works on desktop for images

  • Jonosaa

    This can be done already actually, but it's a little more complicated. You're gonna wanna go into your gallery, find the photo you want to add the spoiler tag to and edit the photo's details. You then have to edit the photo's name. You can name it whatever you'd like, just be sure it starts with "SPOILER_" . Example being "SPOILER_gnome". I've only tested this on an Android phone, but i'm almost certain it would work the same on Iphones. Hope this helped anyone.

    But how the f


  • proud republican

    It doesn’t tell you how

    You can already see spoliers by tapping them or by pressing and holding them. However I do think it could be a good idea to have a permsission to enable or disable markdown
  • Mello

    yeah i meant the show spoiler content option on desktop, except mobile doesn't have that option (yet)

  • geekreate

    Jonosaa, just tested this on iPhone and did not work. Thanks for the work around for Android though

    Easy just do SPOILER_ When your renaming your picture

    How do I do it on mobile

  • ameme

    Does that mean we have to get the link of our image and add “SPOILER_” in front of it? I tried but it doesn’t seem to work

    Would love to see this feature better integrated for things other than text. I know that you can highlight the text you want to ||"Spoiler"|| but you cant really do that for anything else. it also isn't really working for the share panel that most phones have for sharing through another app to discord without opening discord. Other media like jpg or gif are also not easy to spoil guard. Just a little better integration would be nice. Great feature just meh on how well it function on different platforms or sharing methods.

    I would love this feature, as when I'm playing mobile games with story and want to chat about new chapters with guildmates in Discord. I feel bad posting a screenshot that may have a story spoiler on it because I can't click the option via my phone.

  • geekreate

    A workaround for this currently is to get the URL for the image (by DMing an alt or a bot or messaging in a test server of yours, etc., and clicking share button + copy OR uploading to an image hoster) and putting
    || [url] ||
    There must be a space on either side of the spoiler bars and the URL for it to show the actual image (which will be hidden) and not just the link.

  • Suncatcher

    The || url || thing works so just use it for now until further updates and stuff~

    edit: nice i got negative votes

  • Gilgalad

    rename img to "SPOILER_" works thanks using android app.

  • vintprox

    Ain't good, we need less sophisticated way of marking spoiler images on mobile.

  • Monocerus

    We shouldn't have to do a work-around for this, the app should just ask if you want to spoiler an image before posting it.

  • Vas

    Seems clear to me that Discord isn't planning to make this feature, they'll just keep forcing people to do some convoluted method of spoilering images from phones. Possibly they just assume that no one would send game screenshots from phones or anything and they don't want people using it for other purposes. Who knows. There are many times when I wanted to spoiler mark an image I took with my phone. Even screenshots from games I played on my phone when those games were in beta mode and I was testing them and reporting info on them to the devs in their discord server. This should have been an option when spoilers first came out, to be made clickable when uploading on the phone.

  • almostsuspense

    that would be cool

    Yes, please.
  • assimilater

    For real, how hard is it to add a checkbox like they have in pc? This was the ui update we needed. Not the one they gave us

  • Skymii Wonderer

    Please do, Discord! Everyone in the servers i’m in tried to manually spoiler tag the images on mobile devices and didn’t work due to the confusion with the steps. Hope you can implemented in the next update!

  • Rob

    I found a way to do it for iPhone. Save to files on the phone and rename. If you’re doing a vid or gif it works better to save to google drive and then use the google drive app to open it in discord.

  • SparkzYT

    you can do it on mobile by just going to discord on a browser and pressing the + sign on the chat bar

  • FateCharms

    It can be done on iPhone, you just have to save the image as a file and rename it before saving. It'll be in your Files app where you can send the renamed image on discord and have it marked as a spoiler.

  • 🎀Robin💜

    For iOS just save said phot to files and name it (example) “spoiler_gore” then share it from files to the discord app

  • Dirk

    i agree. a work around is just avoiding applying the update to mobile. we shouldn't need a work around!... i'm a nitro user for a long time and i think image spoiler should be an everyone feature for mobile devices. most people use mobile so it only makes sense to implement that. i hope you manage to make everyone such a button! i really like discord but not being able to spoiler images in a simplistic way that desktop/pc can do isn't really ideal. here's to hoping!

  • Kasaman

    We have been asking for this simple feature for a year now come on discord staff
