Works great. Documentation a bit lacking

The instructions never state that you have to replace your existing Archives widget with the new Collapsing Archive widget.

But it works well!

Wonderful plugin but a little bug
By , for WP 4.4

I've use this plugin for years, but there is a bug I found:

In collapsFunctions.js, on the line 39 and line 51, Robert use the jQuery.live for click event, but the live function is removed on jQuery 1.9 [1], should use on function instead. If you do not include jquery-migrate, this plugin won't work on collapse/expand

[1] http://jquery.com/upgrade-guide/1.9/#live-removed

I've modified the collapsFunctions.js on my local, and hope this change will merge into n next version

before
`
./collapsFunctions.js:39: jQuery('#' + id + ' span.expand').live('click', function() {
./collapsFunctions.js:51: jQuery('#' + id + ' span.collapse').live('click', function() {
`
after
`
./collapsFunctions.js:39: jQuery( document ).on('click', '#' + id + ' span.expand', function() {
./collapsFunctions.js:51: jQuery( document ).on('click', '#' + id + ' span.collapse', function() {
`

very buggy
By , for WP 3.5.1

months and year keep disappearing at random so i added this code to js
$('.archives').addClass('expand').removeClass('collapse');
which seams to of fixed it but what the repercussions of this are i don't know
also the remembering of opened years is buggy to but that might be because of the code i added

Simple and effective

Having over 10k articles going back over a decade this has made the archive widget ultra smooth.

Just install and run it with the defaults, or add/remove what you want until it has the level of detail that suits you. Solid fast and looks great. Fits in with the theme seamlessly. Direct replacement for the standard archives widget.

Great Plugin!

Great plugin and lots of options!

Thank you!

Works as expected
By , for WP 4.0

Works really well. The only issue I encountered is that due to my RTL design, the collapse/expand icons are flipped. That forced me into using text-based buttons instead of the nicer built-in icons.

Yep, still works in 3.9.1

Awesome. Don't be put off by the alert telling you that it is old and might not work. It does, and does a great job.

Works and Clients love it
