This mod will not be updated anymore
please see

By using this mod you can add slide in and opacity effects to your regular collapse buttons anywhere in VB powered pages, even in custom mods

see demo:
(ignore the mouse pointer, it's because of my screen capture software)

How to install:
- upload the attached javascript file called "collapse_anime.js" to "clientscript" directory
- add JS include codes to the "headinclude" area of template of the pages you want this hack to function
note: if you want to make it global, add to the main "headinclude" template, tho if you do this, on forumdisplay page you will have two calls for YUI Animation

JS Include codes:

Troubleshooting Note
This file extends/overrides some functions of vbulletin-core.js file so make sure that JS Include codes are inserted after vbulleting-core.js file, otherwise things will break

javascript is only client side so it will only effect the viewer not the server, btw except the core YUI animation utility, the attached js file just overrides some default functions in vbulletin-core.js file, includes 2-3 lines of extra code

that requires a separate JS function or probably some template modifications, it's not something this mod been designed for
