So do you see all the cool kids using collapsable/expandable posts? Do you want to do that too with your Blogger site? Then check out A Walk In The Clouds.

While working on the Tsunami Help blog, we needed a way to show/hide posts on the blog. This functionality had to address criteria that were unique ‘cos of the nature and magnitude of that blog. Existing bloggerhacks didn’t exactly solve the problem either. Here’s why they did not work for us, and the JavaScript-based solution ultimately written to solve the problem. If you are not interested in the long story of the issues we dealt with, you can skip past it and move to the solution directly. Of course reading the story will guarantee you some brownie points which might come in handy if you expect me to answer questions about this code, in the future :)
