Are these broken for anyone else? I checked in both Firefox and Safari and didn't the links did not appear (even on a BK page, where the subpages load quickly).

They do seem to work on Chrome, though.

I also have Firefox 10.0.2 and the Show/Hide hasn't worked for me for 6+ months (at least). They seemed to have stopped working when an update of some sort was done to the wiki last year.

The reason show/hide boxes do not work is because many of the skins provided are broken. You need to go to your Preferences menu and select "Vector" skin. Show/hide works fine for me in this skin and Vector is the preferred appearance for MediaWiki now.

I wish there were something the admins could do to make this the default, or unbreak the default skins.

When you log in it'll be in the top right hand corner. :)

My preference -> Appearance

I use the monobook skin, personally. It's up to you as to which one you like best.

I've never logged in to Yppedia. Would assume there's alot that don't as well. So, yea, I'm thinking I'll agree with LJAmethyst about the defaults needing to be changed/fixed.

You don't think that might possibly have crossed our minds at some point?

Probably several times, but no reason to be snarky about my agreeing with someone :)

This doesn't explain why the show/hide boxes work in Chrome for me, but not Safari or Firefox, all using the same login with Monobook selected.

Here's what happens with my installation, Ubuntu 11.10:

Firefox 10.0.2
Monobook: works
Vector: works
PuzzlePirates stretch: fails

Chromium 17.0.963.65 (Developer Build 124586 Linux)
Monobook: works
Vector: fails
PuzzlePirates stretch: fails

I am using the article http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Iron as a reference; its show/hide boxes are provided in a template called {{Use list}}.

Updated to Firefox 11 beta 7, and the Show/Hide boxes started working again. Weird.
