Article Elements, Content Construction

An easy-to-use and simple content spoiler for use inside Joomla! articles. The content between the {spoiler} {/spoiler} tags will be hidden, and shown upon a click on the spoiler caption. You can specify the captions for the open and closed states of the spoiler.
Nested spoilers (as many as you want) are allowed (see the demo page).

I used to install this plugin on my joomla 3.7 website and it works completely fine.

Ease of use

Very easy to use. one or two clicks and its ready to go.


Fantastic! really fantastic. Dmitry is providing a fast and accurate support.


Enough but could be more detailed

I used this to: Big contents on k2 to hide some part of the article for providing fast and better user experience. and it works like a charm

It works perfectly. It even uses your CSS without having to do anything. Works and looks great.

Ease of use

Extremely easy to use.


Very easy to follow.

I used this to: I embedded a Google Form into a Joomla item and hid it using this plugin. Perfect to hide lengthy code that you still want to include within the same page.
