I'm working on a settings type page in a web portal.
Most of the options are pretty simple, so the sections are pretty small (I'd post a pic if I had the reputation required), but I have advanced options for each section. I'd like to make these options expandable, but I am wondering if it is kosher to expand the section and lengthen the page, or whether I should leave blank space to fill with the options when they are expanded.
A few of the sections already have blank space I could fill with expanded options, but some are very slim, like:
SQL [x] cloud [ ] local
So if I leave space for the options I'm going to have to make this section bigger, leaving loads of white space. Just wondering what's best practise?
EDIT: Here's the page I'm working on:
In the Files & Folders section if you see the "advanced" label with the options below it, this is what I am referring to. The scheduling stuff to the right of it is what I'd like to have appear or expand, and I need to include those options for SQL and Exchange too.
