Automatically expand the Nebula subnav.

JavaScript February 7, 2021


This function runs automatically, so it is not called manually. Is this incorrect?

Additional Notes

This function looks for any menu inside the .xoxo sidebar class with a child UL. It then adds a toplevelvert_expander class to it, and when appropriate (if it is an ancestor menu-item) clicks the expander to show the sub-menu items.
