Showing or hiding locality lists in mineral articles don't work

Posted by Ra'ike Wikipedia

it seems, that there is a big error in the routine, which is needed for displaying the location list on the mineral pages.
For example, in the past the link http://www.mindat.org/show.php?id=305&ld=1#themap showed the complete list of locations, where the mineral Arsenopyrite was found. Now there is nothing to see.
The link http://www.mindat.org/show.php?id=305&ld=2#themap hid the list and instead of this showed the number of locations.

Now there is no reaction, when I use one of those links, but on the right side is a link named "Show" respectively "Hide". When I use this links, only a white page comes and in the URL you can see the line "javascript:hidecollapse(22);" or "javascript:hidecollapse(16);" (in Abelsonite) or something else.

I really hope, this error can be fixed, because this mindat links are needed as an important evidence in many mineral articles on wikipedia.

Best regards

That feature does work in the chrome browser, doesn't in others.

This should be fixed end of first week in September. As has been said it works ok in Chrome and Safari,

Hello, I would like to ask again, because the problem described above still exists. I don't know if the information helps, but I work with Firefox. It would be really nice, if the problem could be solved soon, because the local lists at Mindat are one of the most important sources of information.

Best regards and million thanks for that great homepage! :-)
