How to expand / unfold category list by default

Hi,

currently , my theme looks like this on a -mobile- device:

But I want it to look like this:

 

expanded.jpg

 

 

Meaning: I want the category list to be unfolded by dedault; without the user having to select it.

I think this can be done in: 

 

/app/design/frontend/base/default/template/catalog/navigation/left.phtml  

But I just can't get it to work.

Source code of left.phtml: 

<?php if (!Mage::registry('current_category')) return ?>
<?php $_categories = $this->getCurrentChildCategories() ?>
<?php $_count = is_array($_categories)?count($_categories):$_categories->count(); ?>
<?php if($_count): ?>
<div class="block block-layered-nav">
<div class="block-title">
<strong><span><?php echo $this->__('Browse By') ?></span></strong>
</div>
<div class="block-content">
<dl id="narrow-by-list2">
<dt><?php echo $this->__('Category') ?></dt>
<dd>
<ol>
<?php foreach ($_categories as $_category): ?>
<?php if($_category->getIsActive()): ?>
<li>
<a href="<?php echo $this->getCategoryUrl($_category) ?>"<?php if ($this->isCategoryActive($_category)): ?> class="current"<?php endif; ?>><?php echo $this->escapeHtml($_category->getName()) ?></a> (<?php echo $_category->getProductCount() ?>)
</li>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php endforeach ?>
</ol>
</dd>
</dl>
<script type="text/javascript">decorateDataList('narrow-by-list2')</script>
</div>
</div>
<?php endif; ?>

 

Many thanks in advance ,

Pelle
