I’ve upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.6, and tried to tidy up a bit. My favorite trick for today came from here, where the author discusses a “geek switch” to turn off his more technical material. I have a Chatter category that’s in the same boat – sometimes I want to see it, sometimes I don’t. And I don’t want first-time visitors to have to see it.

I modified the original author’s toggle approach a bit, widgetized, with a touch more Javascript and updated for WordPress 2.6. You can see the toggle in the sidebar to the right, try clicking on it. Pretty fun eh?

See my Toggle Category wiki article for the gory details on setting this baby up. I <3 WordPress.

    Hi there, this is a great mod – just what I was looking for
    been trying to get it working with a wordpress 3.0.4 blog without success….
    any thoughts why? I guess its not compatible?
    thanks anyway for sharing this

    Hey Peter.

    Hrmm, it’s working no problems for me but it’s definitely not a polished product as far as installation goes. 😛

    How far did you get? What problems are you seeing?
