    Often when I am browsing the nlab my mouse will however over a sidebar and it will appear suddenly, this changes the positioning in the text. I know that clicking on it will keep it open but it can be a bit annoying especially when your mouse moves quicker than you intend. Its not exactly obvious that clicking on it will keep it open either. I propose something like a [Show] button, like the ones on wikipedia. That way we can expand the side bar when we want to clearly, I am not so sure what the utility of the mouse hover is.

    I would prefer that too.

    My apologies, I missed this until now. We discussed this a while back here. The consensus was to implement what is suggested in #1. This is a low priority at the moment; at some point, we will switch to a completely static frontend where Instiki is not involved, and I expect to take this up at that time.

    My feeling would still be just to remove it completely, but I’ll of course follow the majority wish!
