I know that we don't use the spoiler syntax in Markdown very often, but it seems it's a bit buggy, at least on this site.

Consider the following test of the spoiler tag, containing both some text and an image:

>! This is a test of the spoiler tag.

>! ![](https://i.stack.imgur.com/vECQ8.jpg)

This displays incorrectly, and it just registers as a normal blockquote:

This behaviour goes away if you separate the text from the image with, say, a horizontal rule, but this is hardly ideal:


It seems to me that this is buggy behaviour and ought to be fixed (and also fixable relatively easily?).

Buggy indeed. Utill its fixed, here is a workaround:

After the text, insert an invisible $${}$$. $${}$$

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, that looks OK - as a workaround. I don't particularly mind the original bug but I still think that it's something the team might want to fix, which is why I reported it ;-) $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty Sep 28 '17 at 18:39
