Description Platonides 2007-07-22 14:53:42 UTC
Add a magic word to have the Table of contents hidden by default when opening an article if the user has javascript enabled.

The table of contents should probably move from magic words to a template syntax.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-07-22 17:28:21 UTC
Seems superfluous.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-07-22 21:27:41 UTC
Agree.  If you want this, you could always use JavaScript to do it.  (Moving __TOC__ and friends to standard magic word syntax would be a decent idea, but it's unrelated.)
Comment 3 Platonides 2007-07-22 21:40:39 UTC
I opened this bug after i was asked for this today. I could make some <span id="hidden-toc"></span> and use javascript to toggletoc if such id exists, but felt it was better done upstream. I also looked for a way to perform it by CSS but didn't find one.

If "hidden" means "not displayed", then __NOTOC__ might fit your needs.

If "hidden" means "collapsed", then it's not good idea. Collapsing of TOC should not depend on editor (= should not be forced by any magic word or whatever) but on reader (could be done via preferences such as "Show TOC collapsed" - which I would actually appreciate).
Comment 5 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-07-22 22:12:46 UTC
Agree, TOCs should not be collapsed on a per-article basis and this should not be added in the core software.  Having a preference is an idea, however.
Comment 6 Rob Church 2007-07-22 22:17:39 UTC
An idea, but not a great one; preferences are evil. This is something that the user can do with a little bit of custom JavaScript, if desired.
Comment 7 Platonides 2007-07-23 10:22:08 UTC
Yes, it means collapsed.
It wasn't as a reader option, but an editor one, for -i presume- big TOCs. Some kid of preference of 'Autocollapse TOCs with more than X elements may do it too'.

Bug 4127 is better suited to fix that.
