I just realized you can't open these when you're looking at them from the posting page. It supposed to do that?


Yeah, because they're nested.

Where'd you get the idea?


Well, I was looking at the fiesta that is also known as Daara's Imperial medals and I realized that it was breaking the height limitation. So, after complaining to Moff, I came up with the folding idea. It isn't totally original, though... some places use it to hide links.

The Eye of Sauron becomes a fiesta? :(

Still, good idea.

I've become aware of some more serious abuses (aka: a choice image that one of the mods had to edit out) of this feature. If you abuse it, you lose it. And I really don't want to lose it, because it works so well. So, please, use it in ways that follow the rules (and my post above).

The last two downtimes (the one today, and a botched one a few weeks ago) were to update this feature. Basically, in its previous iteration, it would still load images within the folded sections, even though they were hidden. So, that contributes to initial page load, and defeats half of the purpose (the other half is sig height/width limitations).

So, I finally had an epiphany of how to do it, and I reworked the feature. Now, the images within will only load if you click the button to display the folded content. Hopefully some will notice a little faster loadtime.

Additionally, this means that the file size limitation for sigs no longer applies, mostly, if you fold your images within
Code:
[f][/f]
. Width limitations still apply, though, for now.

This was one of my requirements for the new template (which honestly should be up sometime this coming week, almost everything is done).

If you want to see how I mean, clear your temporary internet files/cache and click on some of the fold buttons on Swali's sig above me. Before, those images would appear instantly, because they were already loaded when the page loaded. Now, they load when you click the button.
