Here is a comprehensive guide on how one can use a spoiler bot on Discord

What’s Spoiler Bot?

It’s a Discord bot that lets users hide and mark spoilers. The bot replaces the spoiler with a “hover to reveal” GIF.

One will have to hover over the GIF to reveal the spoiler content. It can hide single-line or multi-lined (up to six lines) spoilers. 

It can also mark someone else’s message as a spoiler. 

How To Use Spoiler Bots on Discord?

There is an open-source code you can use to create and allow spoiler bot access to your Discord server. The code is on npm and GitHub. Get a coding environment and follow all the code instructions on the page.

You’ll have to grant the spoiler bot permission to write, read, and delete anything uploaded to the server. Also, go through the configuration page for additional spoiler bot hacks. 

Once you’ve set it, use the following commands to mark your messages as spoilers:
