table with some rows collapse Edit

Hai there, is there a method to create a table and set some rows are collapsible and the rest are not ?

in the previous version , i can use this

some rows are collapsible

{| class="wikitable collapsible"
!colspan="2"| Title
|- class="nocollapse"
| Column 1 || Column 2
|- class="nocollapse"
| abc || def
|- 
| 123 || 765
|- 
| xyz || 123
|- class="nocollapse"
| pqr || 987
|-
|}

This can be realised with a custom toggle.
wiki markup
{| class="wikitable"
!colspan="2"| Title <span class="mw-customtoggle-test wikia-menu-button">[+/-]</span>
|-
| Column 1 || Column 2
|-
| abc || def
|- id="mw-customcollapsible-test" class="mw-collapsible"
| 123 || 765
|- id="mw-customcollapsible-test" class="mw-collapsible"
| xyz || 123
|-
| pqr || 987
|}
result
Title [+/-]
Column 1 Column 2
abc def
123 765
xyz 123
pqr 987

Change the color of the expand-collapse link Edit

How can I change the color of the expand-collapse link text? I want to do this here I assume:

I want the problem solved without inline CSS.

See the problem here:

Also, how can I add a couple nonbreaking spaces in front of the expand-collapse link? I want this problem also solved without inline CSS. --Timeshifter (talk) 19:13, March 14, 2013 (UTC)

Jquery SlidingEdit

Is it possible to use the Jquery Effect .slideToggle() instead of using a fader for collapsing? --Echoblast53 (talk | contributions | chat) 00:49, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

No, not with this built in collapsing feature. You would need to write your own custom collapsing JS separate from this one, as this does not support an end-user option for changing the animation. (Perhaps you could request such a feature as a support request at Special:Contact so that Wikia can possibly feed your suggestions upstream to the MediaWiki folks.)
Also, the author noted in the $.makeCollapsible source code that sliding does not appear to work properly with tables, so you might want to be careful about that. (CTRL + F, search for "action" to locate the part of the code that collapses the elements.) 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 02:43 UTC, Wednesday, 3 April 2013

Place link in another part of a table Edit

I want this cell to collapse

Try one of these two possibilities.
Foo title
a 1
b 2
I want the link next to this text [Expand/Collapse]
This cell collapses. Note that the downside to this approach is that the custom toggler can't alternate between "Expand" and "Collapse", so it will look a bit different.

This text collapses. Note that the class="mw-collapsible-content" element needs to be a child node of the class="mw-collapsible" node. Meaning that you can't have them be in separate table cells if you do it this way.

Both are documented on the help page. 20px_Rin_Tohsaka_Avatar.png Mathmagician ƒ(♫) 02:43 UTC, Wednesday, 3 April 2013
Can I do multiple collapsible cells?
Foo title
a 1
b 2
I want the link next to this text

How do I get this in its own cell, because it's formatted like a header cell not a data cell

I want the link next to this text

I've tried doing it with multiple cells but these conflict

--FortressMaximus (talk) 15:23, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

I think I can do create changing toggle text when it's not in the header cells by combining two tables, I'll try doing this by css.FortressMaximus (talk) 16:36, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

This is a table within a table, with some styling tweaks. Will this work for you?    ǝsʞpɐןǝ  (message wall)  16:42, 5 April 2013
It works but the cell that collapses can't be formated as a data cell, instead it's behaves as another header cell. http://macross.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Infobox/Mecha, the cell is at the bottom and this is the custom table class I made http://macross.wikia.com/wiki/MediaWiki:Wikia.css and an example of the problem http://macross.wikia.com/wiki/VF-11_Thunderbolt#Technology_.26_Combat_Characteristics
Nevermind! Fixed it, the cell i placed the internal table in was a header cell so wiki assume the same formatting in the interntal table's data cell, thank you very much guys!FortressMaximus (talk) 17:24, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

Wikia Edit

Does this not work when using the "Wikia" layout? I've been scratching my head over why I could never get it to work using that layout before noticing that this code seems to work fine when I switch over to Monobook. Is there someway to make it work on the Wikia layout too? Siberian99 (talk) 04:54, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

It should work under Wikia, and honestly you're unlikely to find something that works on Monobook that doesn't work on Wikia.
Could you give a link to a page showing this trouble? Thisismyrofl (talk) 05:42, January 31, 2014 (UTC)
I am sorry, I am an idiot. It does work, it just does not show up during edit preview so I frustrated myself over it when all I had to do was click publish! Thank you for the help. --Siberian99 (talk) 06:18, January 31, 2014 (UTC)
