Need Graceful Fallback With PatternSkin And TwistyPlugin

Main.KennethLavrsen created this on behalf of ThomasWeigert.

The original proposal had the "headline" Do Not Ship Twisty Plugin As Default.

The way that PatternSkin now uses TwistyPlugin means that it does not appear to have a graceful fallback when JS is not enabled.

The PatternSkin currently requires TwistyPlugin to function properly. This was changed by ArthurClemens about a month ago and the argument was to make it faster. Before this the skin relied on TwistyContrib.

If a user has not enabled Javascript it seems that there is no graceful fallback according to Thomas.

I created this from a one-liner on WhatIsIn04x01

I do not see Thomas committing to fix the issue and just not including TWistyPlugin will break PatternSkin so you cannot just do that.

This proposal will need a driver. And I guess the real issue to resolve is the graceful fallback.

This proposal will not be auto accepted after 2 weeks unless it has a committed driver!

Is it possible to be more specific on which areas of PatternSkin it is that do not have graceful feedback?

On the testing side, one easy way to test is to install the web developer addon in Firefox (http://chrispederick.com/work/webdeveloper/), and en-/disable JavaScript from there (one-clik operation).

Attachment listing fallback is graceful as far as I can tell - I would like to have the problematic areas listed?

What do you mean with graceful fallback? Twisty does not hide twisted contents if js is not enabled.

-- ArthurClemens - 15 Oct 2006

I cannot find any trouble with it either. When I disable Javascript it all looks fine. Also the help text on the edit screen.

Why did you raise this issue Thomas?

-- KennethLavrsen - 15 Oct 2006

The last time I looked twisty printed both "Hide attachment" and "Show attachment" next to each other when I disabled JS. That would not be good. Maybe this has been fixed.

I have retested, and Twisty is well-behaved.
