When you're reading a thread full of content warnings in Mastodon, do you get annoyed at having to open each warning one by one?

There's a really easy way to open all the warnings in a thread at once:

1. Go to the thread
2. Click on the eye-shaped icon in the top right corner to toggle all warnings open or closed

That's it!


Woo!! Thank you, didn't notice that one!


I guess having both options is good though as some may not want *all* content warnings expanded, just in particular threads.

@switchingsocial So how do I as a blind person find that feature? Obviously, my screen reader NVDA doesn't say "eye icon".


I'm sorry, I should have added instructions for that.

The alt text for the eye icon is "Show more for all". Hopefully your screen reader detects this.

@switchingsocial wow, I... can’t believe I never tried that, thanks!


I know, I run into these situations a lot on here. Mastodon is so full of really nice semi-hidden features 👍

@switchingsocial I go full bore open all the time with that setting.
I wouldn't be following ppl if their posts bothered me and, if someone keeps getting boosted into my feed... mute/block.

@switchingsocial When I finish my Big Fediverse Coding Project, it will include the option to hide (either completely or behind a cut) or show _particular_ CWs by default.
