Stuck with JavaScript

ok for the licensing. It doesn't look to me that this is anything like respecting the GPL (merely saying it's GPL'd but encouraging unrestricted redistribution) but if everyone's fine with it, let's go for that.

I have spent over a day trying to make the script work with Wordpress, with no success.
I would like to have the exact content of the draft page (http://test.getgnulinux.org/temp/buttons/2/linkbuttons2.htm) into a Wordpress page (http://planet.getgnulinux.org/test).

The Javascript file is called from within the header of the WP theme: http://planet.getgnulinux.org/link_files/togglecodetext.js It comes from here.
The Wordpress codex help page says the JS function should be called from within the post. There are three functions in the script, I tried to call them from the post with

Test page wrote:
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
toggleNext();
getElementsByIdTagAndClassName();
//--></script>

but it doesn't work.

Because there are so many buttons on the page I find it important to hide the code.
Any help at all would be appreciated, I am stuck at this point. You can login to the planet with temp / temp1
thanks
Olivier.

done.

Managed to find a solution. The buttons are now finally up.
The page displays acceptably well, if slightly unpleasantly, during loading and for users without JavaScript.

I did a major clean-up and redesign of the GGL planet site, which was well worth it and will probably be very useful for the future website (PHP especially). There are more exciting things to come this week.

"get GNU"?

They look good, but I've just noticed there's one which reads "get GNU!". I think it's misleading to use that to promote GGL, as GNU and GNU/Linux are different operating systems.

It's certainly not

It's certainly not accurate, but is it misleading? As far as I understand, GNU doesn't run by itself (stably). So if you want to run GNU code, getting GNU/Linux is your best choice (?).
I like that button because Get GNU sounds fun and it's snappy.
I'll remove it if other members think it's misleading too, but otherwise I suggest to let the webmasters decide. ;-)

Well, I have to say that I

Well, I have to say that I have to agree with guyjohnston, because "the GNU system" is Hurd, which isn't Linux at all, though it's also some sort of Unix-like system and by that pretty similar and probably capable of running more or less the same software.
But since Hurd just came too late it's mostly unknown I guess, and by this it might not have received the amount of testing that is necessary to provide a certain amount of security and stability, like we're used to it from Linux.
I've tried to install Debian GNU/Hurd once, but it didn't work, so I can't say much about the system, but I don't really know if it's capable to conquer serious market-share from Linux.
Therefor I think the buttons should be clear that you're talking about Linux and not "that GNU system".

wrong. The HURD is a part of said GNU system.

Also, there is GNU/Solaris, right ? That's another system based on the core GNU software that is hi-quality.

Indeed.

However, people at GNU Project would actually call the GNU with the Hurd kernel as GNU/Hurd simply to differentiate it from other GNU variants like GNU/Linux or GNU/Solaris.

It's become a sort of a tradition now that the GNU based systems are called GNU/name-of-kernel. The GNU is the userland and all essential system components (without which no OS can be) and the kernel is added at its core.

So yeah I tend to agree with guyjohnston too.. There really is a difference.

Sure

Sure. I see what you mean better.
I removed the said button and wrote a planet post about the buttons in general.
