I'll stay expanded for as long as I want to (forever) right? If so, it's great!

#1) it needs to remember which sections are expanded/contracted between pages AND sessions. it's gonna be super annoying if every time i open my browser i have to contract the sections i don't care about. ideally my sidebar preferences would be saved to my profile (or i could set up defaults to attach to my profile).

2p2's cookie management has shown to be unreliable and it's going to be a headache if the sidebar is messed up all the time due to cookies. a personal default in "Display Preferences" would be a good compromise and save the server a ton of load while still keeping display persistent.

#2) needs to be tested on Safari. when the page loads the arrows are in the closed position but the the sections are expanded. takes 3 or 4 clicks to get everything working right.


i really like the way it looks though.

It was tested in Safari, and is working as intended.

However, if you are not accepting cookies that could be your issue.

Totally awesome.

Much easier on the eyes, easier to read and the option to collapse/expand it rocks.

Kiera -

I'm using Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) on a Mac, should be latest build from Software Update. I'm accepting all cookies.

When I load a page with the new sidebar, all the arrows are pointing to the right (ie closed position) but all the links for the forums are all visible. When I click a section heading the first time, the forums below that section heading disappear and the arrow stays in the closed position. A second click does nothing. A third click returns the forum list for that menu and changes the arrow to point down (ie open).

Let me know if you need any more details. It still works, it's just a little screwey.

You did a good job though it looks really really good. TY.

If you have it expanded, it will stay that way for 60 days, or until you delete your cookie for the site.

At that point, with one click, you can use the Expand All link to get it back to how you want it.

OK I tested on Safari 3.0.3(522.15.5) for Windows and was really hoping it was a cookie issue [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

I suspect the function to load the menu with the remembered settings isn't happening for you. Can you double check that you do in fact have the latest mac version?

Yup, I'm running the latest release version. I can install the Safari v3 beta later and post my results or anything else that you think might help (I'm a programmer and I don't mind poking around a little to help out 2p2 and other Safari users)
