Tips & Tricks #1: Expandables

Unread post by Roger » Thu Jan 07, 2016 11:46 am

With the rebooting of our platform, probably a good idea to add a short series of articles to alert you to some of the new features that have been introduced, in addition to pointing out some of the features that may have shifted places in terms of layout.

The first one is a feature that we are particularly pleased about and has answered a question or need we have had for a while and that is - "How to show a cleaner listing to those with a specific interest?"
The answer is - we now have expandables.

In the screen clip below you will see the + and - signs to the right of each forum category. So if you are only interested in Models, you can collapse the GA section. It stores this user selection so each time the user returns it will leave the expanded and contracted sections as they were upon their last visit. We hope these collapsible's save you some time in scrolling to your favourite section(s)

You have to be on a page with Major Titles like the index page. Look at (-) / (+) on right hand side of blue bar.

Does this work for "new posts" listings as well?

Not as far as we have seen.

Nice function...thanks. Will this be expanded e.g. so that one can collapse sections under (for example) General Aviation that one doesn't follow? I.e., just to have the sections showing that one regularly follows? Thanks.
