Spoilers are a very good way to make your thread look cleaner.
Usually, this is used for very large photos or if you have a lengthy thread with numerous photos.
Below is how you add a spoiler.

Step 1: Click "Insert" and select "Spoiler"

Hyperlinks are a very good way to avoid messy links on your thread.
Usually, this is used for redirecting someone to another thread or website.
Below is how you add a Hyperlink.

Step 1: Type the word/sentence you wish to hyperlink and highlight it.
*You can also format (Bold/Italicize/Underline) this text so it's easily noticeable!

Step 2: Click "Insert Link" then "Insert".
