That will take a long time I think.
No. We need time to test this anyways. And we have plans to improve how it works and its compatibility.

They get to keep seeing the magic of the category expanding and collapsing.

That would be an amazing feat of timing, precision and choreography!

Excellent job on this ALPHA release, Matt! I may try this on my live board as the development is finished. :D
No sign of a forum I owned.

Thank you,
Allen

Nice. But where are the images stored?
I would like to replace them. They are too large and they are designed to fit prosilver. They arent very style universal...

Those aren't images, they are CSS styled "buttons".
For the css code, you have to look in the theme folder: https://github.com/phpbb-extensions/col ... css#L4-L28
If you have a specific extension request and you are willing to pay for, you can write me a PM.

Extensions are only required to be designed for Prosilver.

We will be adding additional style versions for validated/released styles per request in the future once released.

It would only need a theme for dark based styles. Just to fit any Dark styles in general.
You already did this for your TopicPreview extension, VSE. :)

Btw, i see the extension saves its settings inside a row, in the phpbb_users table.
I think it is preferable if it would just create a new table like... phpbb_collapseforumcat
And inside it, have two rows, user_id and collapsible_categories.

That way its not altering the users table / core content.
Doesnt create an empty row for each user, and may save a few bytes.
Thoughts?

Any chance that you add a filter to searchresults? Collapsed categories not to deliver search-results.

Using users_table saves SQL query as it makes the data available via the $user->data array without any additional actions.

No it doesn't. We will add theme specific styles because the colors are based exactly on the colors used by the style for a perfect fit. Besides, anyone who can open a file can open the css file and tweak the color codes to match their own styles if they want to support styles we do not support out of the box.

In your topicview Extension you have four themes. Light theme, Windows theme, Marcos theme and Dark theme. I dont think the Light, windows and Dark themes are based on any specific styles. They are just general themes that better fit Light or Dark themed styles. So, i dont see whats wrong if you would support these, out of the box. Add any other styles later :P
