If the schools that my kids attend are anything to go by, it seems that high on Santa's list this Xmas just gone was an iTouch, iPhone or iPad depending how well off the parents were. That's understandable, they are just as attractive as gadgets for kids as they are to adults. But along with the never ending supply of free games, educational apps and the like comes the small problem of unfettered access to the Internet and all that brings with it. While adults may well have the family PC protected by parental control software to filter unsuitable content …

Hi! I am looking to make an adjustment to this script. I'm trying to find a way to do it as neatly as possible, and without breaking any pre-existing functionality. The code is here, with its corresponding tutorial: [URL="http://tympanus.net/codrops/2011/03/28/moving-boxes-content/"]http://tympanus.net/codrops/2011/03/28/moving-boxes-content/[/URL] What I'm trying to do is have the first section open by default. What makes this a challenge for me is that the boxes that assemble to create the content wrapper are drawn on page initialization. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, and I'll do my best to pay it forward.
