The Twisties were recently changes to jQuery

When you load a page the twisties, the buttons for twisties are invisible.

Then after maybe a 1-2 seconds when the page is loaded the whole page starts jumping as the JS gets active.

There is nothing that looks more amateur than webpages loading like this. This makes Foswiki look very bad.

I want the old Twisty behaviour back.

I do not care for developer geekness around jQuery. If this is how jQuery looks then they can keep it.

It is especially pages with attachments that jump like crazy during loading and it is the Attachment button that is invisible first and then appear pushing everything down. If at least the page layout was stable and the button just appeared it may work. But it is not acceptable when pages grow and jump. When I see a website behaving like this I always think it is made by an amateur.

This is nothing to do with jQuery, it's how we're using it.

Just like Item9424, it's not necessarily the tool but what we're doing with it.

But yes, this is a release blocker.

As far as I see this is caused by the recent combination of css and js changes where the display property is set after the page has been loaded, thus causing the flicker effects. Will look into that one.

I made some changes, I'm not sure if they will make everybody happy, because I haven't reviewed the situation for browsers that are noscript. Possibly these changes will need to be re-worked again, but they might be ok.

It seems the noscript experience is the same as on 1.0.9. Closing.
