hbfhbf wiki guy? MVP
edited December 2011 in Questions
This discussion is related to the shortpanel addon.

When viewing a discussion i don't really care what categories of discussion are out there, or what discussions i have bookmarked. This plugin will hide those elements for you.

Edit the .css file to change what items are removed.

    A new version has been uploaded. The changes are in the css file, to utilize a simpler tag that is compatible with more browsers. The visual representation is now correct in Chrome, Opera, Fire Fox and IE9

    Which panel divs are hidden is controlled by the shortpanel.css file in the shortpanel/css folder.

    which pages this css is applied to is controlled by a regex in the php file.

    i plan on doing an update to allow some of this customization through dashboard the next time i tweak it.

    It would especcially nice if it would sense where in a hierarchy one is. I use a heavily Categorised forum to keep the Bike content seperated from the Peoples and the Chit Chat with "disabled" root categories.

    So it would be nice it hid all the other Root Categories (and their siblings) if you are in the People section, so you only see the People related sub-categories.

    Example:

    Bike
    -Engine
    -Frame
    People
    -Inntro
    -Inn-mate
    Agenda
    -Dirt
    -Road

    It would be nice if that could be turned into:

    People
    -Inntro
    -Inn-mate

    And the real nice option would be to only collapse the non-applicable Roots, so you still see whats there, but have a cleaned up "Menu" (sidebar)

    Bike
    People
    -Inntro
    -Inn-mate
    Agenda

    this is a cool idea. I think we would have to apply a bit of JS to accomplish this, but could be done. Unfortunately i don't have the time to work it right now.
