I would like the whole text to be a spoiler, but within this I need to have a blockquote

This line should be part of a spoiler
> This line should be a block quote
this line should just be part of a spoiler.

I included the syntax that I thought it should be although this clearly doesn't work...

  • I didn't know if it was a bug, but an error popped up saying I needed to add the bug tag – qwertylpc Jul 17 '15 at 14:21
  • The spoiler markup is quite borked anyway. Afterall you can't even have a paragraph break inside a spoiler block, and I'd wager that to be even less bothersome than a blockquote. – Christian Rau Jul 17 '15 at 15:06
  • @ChristianRau Inside a spoiler I just use <br><br> for a new paragraph – qwertylpc Jul 17 '15 at 15:38

    Italics and quote marks are your friend... but then again, I detest the use of spoiler markup, so shrug. – Catija Jul 17 '15 at 16:35

You can use HTML markup within the spoiler.

This line should be part of a spoiler

This line should be a block quote
this line should just be part of a spoiler.

>! This line should be part of a spoiler
>! <blockquote>This line should be a block quote</blockquote>
>! this line should just be part of a spoiler.

The blockquote line isn't hidden by the spoiler, but the content is. The blockquote is shown separately by hovering that particular block of the spoiler (bug report).
