#21183 closed New feature (wontfix)

Filter block on the right covers information in admin

Often, when the list_display has many columns or wide ones, the vertical Filter block stays in the way...

I'd wish the blue header of right hand side Filter block in Admin to be clickable to toggle the block visibility. jQuery-animated maybe.

IMHO, the collapse/expand state should be remembered between page loads.

Should this ticket be closed due ticket was merged?

I'm asking because of the Mariusz Felisiak's comment

Closing as "wontfix". #27471 has been implemented and we don't need both options.

Marcelo, thanks for the reminder.

As indicated in ticket description " Often, when the list_display has many columns or wide ones, the vertical Filter block stays in the way..." .
The filter block internals being "collapsible" ( does help with vertical space, but does not help with the lack of horizontal space this ticket about.

I want to reopen this issue, as I work at the company where this problem affected multiple project and we wish to contribute to solve it upstream.

Hello Maciej, thank you for your interest in helping with Django!

Your contribution is welcomed! But, since this ticket was closed as wontfix with a provided rationale, before re-opening the ticket, we would need a new post in the Django Forum to explain the new rationale and seek consensus to re-open.

To do that, please start a new conversation on the Django Forum, where you'll reach a wider audience and likely get extra feedback. I'll close the ticket for now (following the documented procedure), but once that there is a community agreement for the feature request, you are welcome to come back to the ticket and point to the forum topic, so we can then re-open it.
