Support » Themes and Templates » Collapse threads

  • I want to add a feature to P2 theme, but I lack the PHP and Javascript skills to get it right. (I’m a very good HTML / CSS coder but my development ability ends there, at the moment.)

    I want to be able to “collapse” all threads so I see a very minimalist listing of thread titles. This would allow me to see at a glance links to the last 100 posts.

    Think about it like an email inbox. You can see just the subject, date, and author. This doesn’t let you see any of the content, but it gives you enough info to know which messages you want to look at immediately, and which ones you can read later.

    This is in some respects similar to the “Toggle Comment Threads” feature, but taking it a few steps further.

    I know there is some complexity. For P2 posts that do not have a title (category: status or links) I guess it would just say something like “John Doe posted a link on January 1, 2011.”

    Can anyone get me started? Or has such a feature been created already?

    Thanks so much.
