It would be great to be able to set the toolbar to start at the "minimized" size.

I would like to place the toolbar on my website in the folded state, this looks nicer and i've people want to use the tools they can simply unfold the toolbar

Have an option so that wibiya bar starts in the little tools mode rather than the full bar by default. It'll be a lot less obtrusive and usable.

I am also loving to have this feature enabled. Since I've added the bar I thought why not have it start minimized? Nice to hear the feature is coming soon.

if this feature is implemented it will only make the tool bar better!!!

can we make the toolbar just 90% of the width not the entire width?

thanks

I can't wait for this feature! the web is all about per-missioning and having the bar minimized gives people the opportunity to explore on their own!

When is this going to be finished? Had to code out the toolbar until this gets resolved but I still think its a great product!

It's not like the 5 minute task is taking more than month. Or maybe they just dont have the proper coders. Either way, im starting to lose my trust in them.

I mean, i translated the Wibya to estonia, 3 weeks ago, and they still havent pushed it out.

Yes, it would be a great feature and easy to implement.

HOWEVER, Wibya is in beta and most likely wants to have as much exposure to their toolbar as possible. If the toolbar was minimized it would hardly be noticed by new visitors.

I think they deserve to have the full toolbar display.

I too would love this functionality on some sites I run Wibiya on.

Its fantastic across all the sites, its just in the more "sensible" areas/sites, i'd like to keep it smaller if I can.

Great work. And think its an incredibly useful addition to my sites.

Sounds like this feature won;t make it live which is a bummer because I won;t use it unless it starts minimized...

Love the idea, looks great, covers my navigation menu, needs to be minimized to let the user decide to open it for my people at least.

I'm also looking forward for this feature. But new notifications should be visible, even if toolbar starts minimized.

I'm definitely hoping for this. Starting at full size as it does now, the toolbar has a tendency to obscure certain other dynamic features of the site like lightbox overlays. It also hides part of the footer. I also don't get enough interaction to justify having the bar auto-expand for everyone. If only two people use it, why should the other 600 or so be encumbered? Those who want to use it can expand it.

Yes, there is the possibility that interaction will go down even more for me if the bar is defaulted to collapse, but it's always been so low that I'm already considering dropping it to reduce page, code, and script clutter. Can't get worse...

It's been a year now and I don't see that feature.. Is it really that hard?
