East of the Sun, West of the Moon


Fade in, fade out

I’ve changed the sidebar to use a so-called accordion effect where you click on the header of a section to unfold it and fold away the previously visible section. This should allow me to put content there without cluttering up the page, visually, and will inspire me to put the links back on the front page that I’d relegated to the links page in the static content.

I’ve tested that it works with Firefox ( and Safari (2.0.4), but let me know if it misbehaves with your particular browser choice.

That said, what do you think of this technique? Good or bad, helpful or annoying?


  1. It’s nice. I like it. It could be a fractionally tiny bit faster in the effect though.

  2. The duration of the transition is by default half a second. I’ve changed that to a quarter of a second, which should make it comparatively zip along!

    Thanks for suggesting it, I hadn’t even thought about checking if that was configurable, until now. 🙂
