Hi,

When people visit my forum page the forum is collapsed. Is it possible to have the initial display as "expanded" ? If so then where/how is this done ? What setting, or settings, do I need to change please ?

Regards, John.

See "collapsible" and "default view" at Category Management System.

Thank you. It doesn't appear to work though. That's why I thought that wasn't the place to fix things.

I have under "Category Management System"..

Collapsible "Yes"
Default View "Open"
Parent Category "Top Level"

Yet people need to double click the forum name to get everything to expand.

Can anyone here see what I am doing wrong, and how I can fix it please ? I may want it as it is at the moment sometime in the future BUT at the moment an "expanded" option may be handy. Smile

Regards, John.

The forum will "remember" your previous settings. So, if you collapse a category, it will remain collapsed for your session until you open it. Besides that, this feature works as documented.
