By default the first section of the sidebar menu on Vector Skin (usability
initiative) is expanded, and when the user open/close the other ones the values
are saved on a cookie. It would be very interesting to choose which sections
are expanded/collapsed by default as administrators.

As sysops could control which sections are more important to be viewed.

As an example;
If none cookie was found, sidebar is setup to load sysop values.
If a cookie was found, sidebar is setup to load user values.

This propose it is a little different from

Moved to the Extensions-section under "Vector". The collapsiblenav-stuff is part of the Vector-extension (which has emerged from the usability initiative)

Best way to do this is probably by setting a flag on the section in MediaWiki:Sidebar to indicate it should not be collapsed by default.

User settings will, as always, override the default settings.

Prio has been bumped from highest/enhancement back to normal/enhancement.

Bartosz: should this bug still be filed under MediaWiki extensions --> Vector?

I re-open that task because I need to configure the collapsed/expanded status of custom sidebar menus... and I don't see how to do that even by reading bug #39035 details.

Not particularly useful to reopen, this is invalid until T69954 is fixed. I marked it as blocked, but it's probably more useful to dupe instead, and add this requirement to the description of T69954.
