I finally got around to updating the sidebar collapser plugin I made a while ago. The intial reason behind this script was that there is way too much stuff in the sidebar, and I wanted a way to hide most of it by default.
Eventually, I’d like to deal with that by moving some of that stuff to separate pages, but this will have to do for now. It should show certain items by default, and hide the rest, and it should remember your selections (within that session) via cookies.
I’ll get around to posting the code for this shortly. As usual, I’d be interested to hear if it doesn’t work for you. For this one in particular I did no cross-browser testing at all for (FF3/Linux only), so YMMV.
