Infinite SEO Meta Box is forced collapsed, can I have it force open?

I'm assuming this is just me and a conflict with my plugins. But ever since I've used Infinite SEO, it's meta box is always collapsed. You know how you can on most meta boxes click it's collapse/open icon and it will stay open or collapsed in the post editor until you decide to change it. Well, that doesn't work for me. Infinite SEO and MOZ are always collapsed.

Is this normal and how can I fix this?

I want Infinite SEO at least to be opened by default.

Thanks gurus... Happy Hump Wordpress Day.

    hiya

    no it's not just you, it's just like that as default.

    I'm not sure of a way to change it, it might need changing in the javascript unfortunately. my javascript knowledge is basic at best though.

    let me just ask the developer for you. but i don't think you'd be able to do this independant of the plugin, so you would need to keep redoing the change everytime the plugin is updated.

    hope this helps.

    Ok, thanks. Can you make it a featured request then? Why not just let us choose?

    I know it is rather a bigger meta box, but still I would like to choose.

    I have my Wordpress installation soo clean and understand and sectioned off that having the SEO section default collapse is actually a hinderance to the way I have things laid out.

    See a screenshot of my admin @ http://d.pr/i/njdc

    When the SEO tab is clicked on, I want the beautiful Infinite SEO to give out all it's glory! :wink:

    I will look in the javascript to see while I wait then. I'm not a pro at it, but I understand it's communications an I can probably find it from there. Thanks. I will post back if I find it to update you, thanks.

    @Vaughan, hey I solved it.

    It was in /wpmu-dev-seo/wds-files/wds-core/wds-core.php

    Lines 451-456 reference the forced collapsed meta boxes.

    Commenting out line 454 works.

    It looks like this for anyone wondering.

    function force_metabox_collapsed_state ($closed) {
    	$closed = is_array($closed) ? $closed : array();
    	return array_merge($closed, array(
    		'wds-wds-meta-box', 'wds_seomoz_urlmetrics'
    	));
    }

    Then make it like...

    function force_metabox_collapsed_state ($closed) {
    	$closed = is_array($closed) ? $closed : array();
    	return array_merge($closed, array(
    		//'wds-wds-meta-box', 'wds_seomoz_urlmetrics'
    	));
    }

    I just commented out the meta boxes the force closing was referencing with "//".

    Can we still have this as an option in Infinite SEO? I need it.

    Kind regards,
