Collapsable Quote Mod

What does it do?
==================

Sometimes, when others post lots of quotes, or very long ones, you might get the wish to hide the quoted text and only read the new posted message.
Now you can
This little mod makes the quotes collapsable, like the categories on the forumhome or other areas of vBulletin.


Installation
==============

To apply this go to:
AdminCP -> Style Manager -> Edit templates -> "BB Code Layout Templates" group -> Template: "bbcode_quote"

Edit that template, cut out (=delete) EVERYTHING that's in there and paste this back in:



Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


Hit "SAVE" and you're done


*** If you are one of the lucky folks that have the "Template Manager" installed: ***
You can simply take the template .XML also supplied as download and import it via the template manager -> even faster and more easy done
(you might have to check "overwrite templates" when importing)


What else?
============

By default this collapsable quotes start up collapsed!
So if a user wants to read the quoted text he has to uncollapse it.

If you want it the other way round, users can collapse quotes they do not want to waste space for the moment:
Remove (or leave out at install) the last three lines of the template:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If that part is removed/left out all quotes start up uncollapsed and visible.


That's it.

Have fun

Just had the same error as this afternoon, everything was Ok then I read a thread and the quote box was already open, tried to collapse and it wouldn't, went to a different theme based on bulletin default and it worked OK but the one I usually use is heavily customised, no idea why it does it a random though

More on this, it happens only in certain threads and only where there is more than one quoted box, the first quote works fine and collapses or opens, the second and subsequent are open when the page loads , if you try and collapse them it opens or closes the quote in the earliest post, weird.

The thing with the text is just a phrasing issue.
I changed it in the description and attached files to "click to expand/collapse".
The text doen't change when the quote is expaned or collapsed - it's not supposed to, at least at the moment

That's caused by vB's page caching.
But, like you already said, logging out and back in usually does the trick
