Reviews

Nice & simple

Works great, thanks a lot. One thing though, somehow within my theme the alignment to the left didn't work out. margin-left: 0 !important; wasn't enough, it seems. I fixed it by adding padding-left: 0! important; to .collapsed-archives > ul { } Also made a modification to add a fade/transition effect to the dropdown. For those interested it's just some addition the last few lines of code: /* Toggled content */ .collapsed-archives input ~ ul { display: inline-block; opacity: 0; transition: opacity 0s linear 0s; -webkit-transition: opacity 0s linear 0s; } .collapsed-archives input:checked ~ ul { opacity: 1; display: block; transition: opacity 0.5s linear 0s; -webkit-transition: opacity 0.5s linear 0s; }
