collapsible / expandable right menu

Post by torgivus » Thu Oct 16, 2008 10:46 am

Hallo,

I have some Problems with the collapsible right menu.
I want to display 2 modules in the right column. The first one is a gmaps module, the second one a picture. It is all done, but:

1. I want them to be collapsed, when one visits the specific site. I ve already tried out the "Default Status: Collapse all" Option, but it does not work. When I revisit the site (even with deleted cache), both are expanded.

2. Or even better, have the gmaps module collapsed and the picture module expanded.

Is that possible? And if yes, how?

I already searched this forum and the forum on joomlart.com

Thanks for your support

I can't seem to get the default state to be closed either.

Anyone have any help in this area?
I'm using 1.5.8

I think this problem may have something to do with the use of a the mainmenu module in the column. I have noticed that not collapsing by default only happens where there is a menu.

I am using a semi-effective CSS override to have menus in the left column collapse by default.:

Code: Select all

#ja-container2 div.jamod ul.menu { display: none; }
#ja-container2 div.jamod ul.menu { display: block; }
In Firefox and IE, this causes the menu to collapse onpageload, so you still see the menu briefly at first. Not ideal, but okay until I find a better solution...


??? Interesting Note:
This collapsing issue has not ever seemed to be a problem in Google Chrome.
