The collapsible topics format is a clone of the core topics format that adds collapsing behaviour to sections in order to reduce page size. A plugin setting allow to retain topics collapse state on a per user basis for the current session or across sessions. This plugin is an alternative to Gareth J. Barnard's format_topcoll plugin (see references below) The purpose is to offer a simple collapsing behaviour for sections in order to reduce course home page size without all the display options that Gareth's plugin offers.

    Dear Jean-Roch,

    I've installed the plugin and what can I say, but 'neat' very 'neat', I like it! smile It is simple, elegant and does what it does well. From a technical point of view I love your use of the tilde selector combinator. One concern is the similarity of the name with CT, but perhaps time will tell, we'll just have to manage any support issues accordingly. I did notice that with Boost on M3.5 that when the section opens there is a slight height readjustment 'flicker' that is visible.

    Cheers,

    Gareth

    Dear Gareth,

    Thanks for your feedback smile (you can add it to your favourites if you like wink )
    As for the height readjustment 'flicker', I think removing the bottom margin on
    (line 119 of sytles.css) will do the job. I'll fix that in next release.

    Cheers,

    Jean-Roch
