How can I show / hide content and have it shown / hidden when the page is refreshed or revisited?

I have a toolbar in my forum. If someone presses a button, the toolbar will disappear. If they go to, per say a topic, the toolbar will still be hidden. Then if they press another button it will reappear. Can it be done?

I have forum version phpBB3 and you can see my codes if you reply. Thanks Smile

Hi,

It can be done with JS cookies. Have you learnt about cookies?
You can set different values for the cookie on the click event. So, the cookie will have value "HIDE" when clicked first and "SHOW" when clicked another time Very Happy

I haven't learned it...yet. I just assumed that cookies would be what saves their choice.

I learned some basic Javascript at w3schools but looking at that tutorial I get a bit confused tongue Do you think I should continue learning or can I dive right into the lesson without further knowledge?

Cookies can be bit hard to learn for a beginner.
I'll try to write a script for this.

Ankillien, I don't think this crosses the line for advertising, but if it does, you may remove the link.

I've already written a tutorial for setting/saving cookies. It would be very easy to modify the tutorial to toggle the CSS display property.

That can't be considered as advertising since the link is helpful.

I forgot about the my_secookies() function. It becomes much easier with these functions to deal with cookies Very Happy
