A screenshot of how I envision the toggle... (143.93 KB, image/jpeg)

Description Jamie Hari 2007-09-04 14:29:07 UTC
We use CategoryBrowser extensively... (see link below)
I have never found any problems/bugs with it and we like it very much.
With that said, I would like to request a new feature be added.

Some of our articles can have 20+ categories and this leads to a large, unwieldy list at the bottom. Could we have a show / hide toggle added to the top right hand corner of the section? I envision something akin to the Table of Contents toggle.

Aside from that, it might have a setting that allows administrators to default it to 'hidden' or 'displayed', from LocalSettings.php.

Jamie: So this request is about having a list with one category per line, instead of the current box with basically one single line of all categories and linebreaks? Or just about a show/hide toogle? Or both?
