Our collapsed threads option makes it easier to browse through the threads on
your board, by only showing the starting message of each thread on your
message board's main page. However, the replies are still readily accessible.
Next to the title of each starting message on your board will be a icon, which
when clicked will "expand" the thread to show all responses that have been
posted to that message. Further, when the thread is "collapsed", below the
thread there will be information showing the number of responses there have
thus far been to that message, and the date of the most recent response (in, of
course, your custom date format!)
In addition, on the top of your board there will be an "Expand All" button, which
will allow viewers to expand all threads on your board to full view.
When you expand all messages, or open a single thread, the board will remember which
threads are opened and/or closed during your browsing session.
